Help tell The Catholic Story to the world

Since its release in 2011, Bishop Robert Barron’s award-winning CATHOLICISM series has been the most-watched Catholic documentary of all time. The series has aired on PBS and EWTN and has been viewed and appreciated by millions of people around the world.

The CATHOLICISM series told the Catholic story – our story – like never before. It revealed the beauty of the Church, the splendor of its goodness, and the genius of its truth.

But there’s still more of the story to tell.

Introducing volume one of Bishop Barron’s CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players. This film series, set to release in September, brings to life influential Catholics who not only shaped the Church, but changed the course of civilization.

You’ll discover the places where St. Thomas Aquinas lived, learned, and wrote. Visit the countryside where St. Francis gathered a group of friars and revived the Church. See the places where St. Catherine of Siena ministered and prayed. Trek through England to where Bl. John Henry Newman and G.K. Chesterton left their mark and sparked an English Catholic revival. And through unprecedented HD footage, marvel at the extraordinary art of Michelangelo, from his David statue in Florence, to the Pietà at St. Peter’s, to the Sistine Chapel.

But to bring this magnificent story to the world, we need your help!
