‘Catholicism’ documentary to be shown on PBS stations

Television viewers across the country will get a glimpse into the rich history, culture and tenets of the Catholic faith this fall when 90 public television stations across the country air episodes of a series called “Catholicism.”

The documentary was produced and hosted by Father Robert Barron, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago and leader of the Chicago-based Word on Fire ministry.

Public Broadcasting Service chose to air four of the 10 episodes in the series: The revelation of God become man; the mystery of God; Mary, the mother of God; and Peter and Paul as missionaries.

Catholics in central Indiana can view the documentary on WFYI Channel 20 in Indianapolis at 2 p.m. on Oct. 9 and Oct. 16. Catholics who live in southeastern Indiana can view it on WTPO in Cincinnati on Oct. 12, Oct. 19 and Oct. 26 at 8 p.m.
