What We Are
Born on the wings of the 2002 World Youth Day in Canada, Salt + Light is a unique instrument of the New Evangelization. It is dedicated to being – and helping others become – the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Our mission is to proclaim Jesus Christ and the joy of the Gospel to the world by telling stories of hope that bring people closer to Christ and the Catholic faith.
We share the joys and hopes of the Gospel through television, radio, print, and online media. Our work unites people together through prayer, celebration, reflection, education, authentic dialogue and enquiry, thought-provoking reporting and stories of faith and action. We also challenge believers to grow in the knowledge of the faith and the Catholic tradition in its many expressions. We strive to offer an invitation to all peoples, especially those on the peripheries of faith and the Church, to draw closer to the Lord and experience the community of the Church.
What We Do
Salt + Light is an award-winning digital network that offers a variety of programs, event coverage, series, documentaries and other hope-filled content. The network is available at a low monthly cost on various cable and satellite carriers in Canada and throughout the world via online streaming and on-demand videos.
Salt + Light is regarded as a unique story teller of issues that are important to society. Since our first documentary, Love is a Choice, launched in 2004, we have built up an impressive library of award-winning documentary productions.
Since 2007, we have offered our services as a production house to various groups in need of promotional videos and regularly provide this sought-after service. Salt + Light specializes in: video production; script writing; shooting; editing and packaging.
Beginning in 2009, Salt + Light made a move to radio. Thanks to the invitation of the Catholic Channel
on satellite radio, Salt + Light began producing the S+L Radio Hour, a weekly one-hour long radio show, featuring interviews, music, news updates, and event listings.
A high-quality seasonal publication that is widely distributed across Canada.
