What People Are Saying

I hosted Michael Kenney as a guest on both my radio show and at my parish. On both occasions, he was a definite “hit.” Michael is a dedicated and inspiring man. He has a strong successful record in the fields of law, education, and communication. His commitment to a robust Catholic Christianity is both obvious and contagious. With more people like Michael Kenney, the Church WILL begin a NewEvangelization.

Dan Cheely
Director of Evangelization at St. Mary of the Angels and Relevant Radio Host

Michael, I have known you for many years; everything you have ever done has been in service of God, your faith, and others. I want to thank you for a lifetime of service. And I want to pledge our [the clergy and religious] support to you in any way possible.

Father Jim Baraniak

Michael read the script, believed in the project, and inspired the first investors. Without him, there would be no Unplanned.

Cary Solomon
Writer, Producer, Director, Unplanned (2019)

Michael Kenney’s presentation on the feature film “Unplanned” at Saint Odilo Church Berwyn, Illinois was just what the doctor ordered. It helped everyone to put the movie and the issue and even filmmakers in a proper context. We learned clearly that there are decent, good people who believe in life and love and who are producing and filming quality pro-life movies. It was more than encouraging to learn that.
