In Her Footsteps: Coming Soon

October 20, 2012
The time has come for the premiere of our latest documentary!
Here's some background information on St. Kateri Tekakwitha (on whom this documentary is centred). For 350 years, a young Christian Mohawk woman has been interceding for and inspiring natives and non-natives around the world. Written accounts from Jesuit missionaries in the late 17th century emphasize her virtuous life, devotion to chastity, hatred of sin and self, extreme practices of penance as well as hundreds of accounts of miracles after her death at the age of 24.
This moving, one-hour documentary takes us on a journey from northern New York State to Montrèal and Kahnawà:ke, QC; from Washington State to New Mexico, as we follow St. Kateri's incredible journey of deep faith, heroic sacrifice and love of Christ. Featuring many people who have been touched by her -including the little boy who received the miraculous healing that led to her canonization- the film shows that no one is too simple or too young to follow Christ, and that this woman, whose face was scarred and vision was weak, is still a source of Grace and healing for all.
Join us for our world television premiere of In Her Footsteps: The Story of Kateri Tekakwitha on Sunday, October 21 (tomorrow) at 8:00pm ET/9:00pm PT.
