New Animated Catholic Film Inspires Catholic Youth to Live With Fearless Faith

September 19, 2009 by George Vogt   | Filed under Catholic US News, Lifestyle | Tagged:

WORCESTER, PA (MetroCatholic) - In an age increasingly resistant to faith, no one is more vulnerable to secular attacks than our children. Catholic Heroes of the Faith presents “The Story of Saint Perpetua”, a riveting, true account of a young woman whose faith and eventual martyrdom has left a lasting impression throughout the centuries. This first episode of the new animated series will inspire Catholic youth to respond with fearless courage and unselfish love in the midst of a godless culture.

According to the review on the United States Catholic Council of Bishop’s website, “This is an uplifting half-hour animated dramatization of the arrest, imprisonment and martyrdom of saints Perpetua, Felicity and their companions, in the North African city of Carthage circa 203 AD. Aimed at viewers eight and up, the hand-drawn cartoon adheres to the journal Perpetua kept in prison, and shows her pagan father’s efforts to convince her to abandon the faith, her bold testimony during her trial and — as recorded at the end of the journal by a follower — her fortitude in the arena.”

The DVD also comes with special teaching features including English and Spanish languages with optional English and Spanish subtitles, comprehensive leader’s guide with lesson plans, reproducible student handouts that include comprehension and discussion questions, puzzles, activities, coloring, and more. In addition, there is a cutting-edge interactive website specially designed to captivate kids with family-friendly videos and downloads related to the film.

This integrated set of high quality tools is an excellent catechetical resource for parochial schools, CCD classes and home schooling! “‘The Story of Saint Perpetua’ is a beautiful way to see, in the cares of a long-ago youth, a reflection of the concerns of today’s youth and to find a model response to the challenges of a culture hostile to the faith,” says Catholic historian and author, Mike Aquilina. “When kids see what God can do through a person devoted to His will and purposes, they too may want to demonstrate an unswerving commitment to Christ and His Church.”

About “Catholic Heroes of the Faith”
Catholic Heroes of the Faith is an animated series geared primarily to children 8-12 years of age, which presents true-life accounts of outstanding Early Church heroes of the Catholic faith. “The Story of Saint Perpetua” is the inaugural episode of the series.

And soon to be released is an accompanying 55-minute documentary with Early Church expert Mike Aquilina. This excellent companion piece, that contains footage of the actual locations where St. Perpetua’s story took place, is a valuable resource for schools, libraries and families and is a wonderful resource that presents St. Perpetua as a real person and not just an animated character.

Additional endorsements:
“Well done and quite inspirational! I was very impressed indeed, both with the historical accuracy of the content and with the entertainment value.” — Rod Bennett - Author of “Four Witnesses: The Early Church in Her Own Words”

“The scriptwriters did their homework well, and have produced a story with a high degree of historical accuracy. The artwork is also of a consistently high quality. The richness of the colors and the vividness of the character drawings are at times reminiscent of The Prince of Egypt and other Hollywood productions.” — Carl Sommers - Catholic Educator and Author

WATERTOWN, MA (MetroCatholic) - On Sept 22nd, CatholicTV will host Gabriella Howard and Sharon Teague, promoters of a unique young adult/teen ministry called Extreme NORTH. The pair will appear on the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.

CatholicTV is a nationally-broadcasted television network headquartered near Boston. CatholicTV streams its broadcast simultaneously, 24 hours a day at www.CatholicTV.com

Extreme NORTH is unique because it is an unusually large-scale youth ministry sponsored by a single Catholic parish. The idea for the unique ministry came when 2 priests, Fr. Raymond Van De Moortell and Fr. David Lewis discussed how there was a growing need to minister to teens and young adults. They contacted a parishioner, Peter Campbell, and the rest is history. Extreme NORTH events include a talk by a speaker, 30 minutes of praise and worship, and opportunities for confession.

Figure skater and singer Gabriella Howard and fellow host of Extreme NORTH, Sharon Teague will discuss the compelling ministry on the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.

Popular Priest Combats Crisis of Faith - Digitally

September 3, 2009 by George Vogt   | Filed under Catholic US News, Lifestyle | Tagged: ,

CHICAGO, IL (MetroCatholic) -  Fr. Robert Barron is one of the world’s greatest and innovative teachers of spirituality. The popular Catholic preacher and author is drawing a record number of visitors to his redesigned website, WordOnFire.org. Fr. Barron is also tapping YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other new media tools to engage thousands of people - Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

“People aren’t just spontaneously coming to our institutions anymore,” said Fr. Barron, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago. “We have to go out to get them. It’s the way we have to go if we’re serious about evangelizing the next generation.”

Chicago’s Cardinal George calls Fr. Barron one of the Church’s best messengers. Ten years ago, Fr. Barron had the foresight to launch his own website and soon became the first podcasting priest in America. Today, WordOnFire.org offers new, highly-interactive features that invite visitors on a global journey and into a deeper conversation about the spiritual life and the Church’s teachings.

Fr. Barron’s online videos, audio sermons, and articles cover a variety of topics and media, offering compelling commentaries on everything from the best-selling book “The Shack” to the Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire” to the recent controversy over President Obama’s speech at Notre Dame. Visitors to WordOnFire.org can also take a virtual pilgrimage with Fr. Barron as he films a landmark, high-def epic adventure, The CATHOLICISM Project. The documentary series will take viewers to over 30 locations in 15 countries and is hailed by writer George Weigel as “one of the most significant efforts ever to advance what Pope John Paul II called ‘The New Evangelization.’”

“I’m very excited about the newly designed website. We are attempting to engage the culture with the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” explained Fr. Barron. “And I would like to highlight that word ‘engage.’ All of the forums on the website are interactive, allowing the visitor to talk back, to raise questions, to elicit further comment. Why not use these amazing technologies? It’s something the Church has been behind on.”

The mission of Word On Fire is to draw people into the Body of Christ, which is the Church, and thereby gives them access to all the gifts that Jesus wants his people to enjoy. In the same spirit of obedience held by the first disciples, who upon Christ’s command cast their nets into the deep waters of the sea, Fr. Barron puts out into the deep waters of the world-wide Web. The Word On Fire website draws more than 300,000 visitors each year from every continent.

VocationMatch.com Inquiries Surge 14% in 2009

September 3, 2009 by George Vogt   | Filed under Catholic US News, Lifestyle | Tagged:

CHICAGO, IL (MetroCatholic) -  The VocationMatch.com website saw a record number of people complete online profiles and inquire about a vocation as a Catholic sister, brother, or priest in the past year. Launched in 2007, VocationMatch.com has seen inquiries jump from a first-year total of 5,591 to 7,073 in 2009. The age range of respondents continues to trend younger with 50 percent under 30 and 17 percent in their 30s. According to current VocationMatch.com statistics, many who find themselves interested in a religious vocation are not free of debt; most desire service-oriented or missionary communities, and a majority of both men and women want to wear a religious habit.

  Comparing 2009 VocationMatch statistics to 2008:
  --  Participants not free of debt rose by 7 percent to 42 percent.
  --  Apostolic, service-oriented communities continue to appeal to the most
      participants, 27 percent, and interest in missionary communities rose
      2 percent to 20 percent.
  --  86 percent desire to wear a religious habit, although 26 percent
      preferred that the choice be optional--a nearly twofold increase from
      last year.
  --  Those desirous of living alone but connected to a larger community
      dropped by more than 5 percent.

In much the same way dating websites bring potentially compatible couples together, VocationMatch.com allows an inquirer to create a profile, which is matched against the profiles of hundreds of participating religious communities. Inquirers can click to have their profiles sent to any of their matches. Or they can use the descriptive listings, videos, and links featured in their results to learn more about matching communities and possibly begin a conversation with them.

Among the many 2009 VocationMatch.com users who credited the website’s effectiveness, Joshua Warshak said: “Many of the religious communities that sent me emails I had never heard of . . . one in particular caught my eye . . . and I would have never known about them if it hadn’t been for vocationmatch.com. I now plan to join the order.”

  Other 2009 findings:
  --  Nearly 79 percent of respondents live in the U.S.; 8 percent in the
      U.K.; 4 percent from Canada; and 2 percent from Ireland.
  --  Ministries of interest include prayer, education, retreat work, and
      social service.
  --  Respondents have diverse work experience with business, healthcare,
      nonprofit, social work, and lay ministry among the most frequently
      cited.
  --  Nearly 60 percent attended Catholic schools.
  --  81 percent have done volunteer work or gone on religious retreats.

VocationMatch.com, sponsored by VISION Vocation Guide, a publication of the National Religious Vocation Conference in Chicago, is a free service for those with an interest in vowed religious life.
