Go and Teach: Inside the Synod on the New Evangelization

June 24, 2013
We're proud to announce that our latest documentary "Go and Teach: Inside the Synod on the New Evangelization" will premiere this coming Wednesday, June 26, 2013 in the Vatican Filmoteca. Below please find the official press release:
Canada's Salt and Light Television will premiere its latest documentary "Go and Teach: Inside the Synod on the New Evangelization" during a special viewing by the Roman Curia on Wednesday afternoon, June 26, 2013 in the Vatican Filmoteca. The event is jointly sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization and the Synod of Bishops.
One of the most significant fruits of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) was a revived sense of apostolic fraternity and collegiality among the world’s Bishops. When at the end of the Council many Bishops expressed their strong desire to build on the experience, Pope Paul VI established the permanent Synod of Bishops.
In October 2012, fifty years after the opening of Vatican II, the 13th Ordinary Synod of Bishops was held under Pope Benedict XVI to discuss the New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith.
For the first time two young journalists (Salt and Light producers Sebastian Gomes and Charles Le Bourgeois) were allowed inside the Synod to document the entire experience, working closely with a camera crew from Rome Reports and the Vatican Television Centre, "Go and Teach" is a dynamic documentary that tells the story of the Catholic Church's effort to find its identity and live out its mission in the complex global reality of the 21st century.
This 55-minute film offers many poignant interviews with the protagonists and participants in the October 2012 Synod, and tells the story of the Synod against the backdrop of the Second Vatican Council. The documentary will air on Canada's national Catholic television network in September 2013.
A French version of the documentary has also been produced by the French language department of Salt and Light Television.
Copies of the documentary will be made available to Synod participants thorough the generosity of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation and the Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops.
For further information, please contact Fr. Thomas Rosica, C.S.B., CEO of the Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation. He is at the Vatican from June 24-30, 2013 and can be reached at rosica@saltandlighttv.org
