The Catholicism Project


Location: Jordan Hall of Science, Room 105

This is a special screening featuring clips of Rev. Robert E. Barron’s documentary on the history and heritage of the Catholic Church. Fr. Barron will host the screening and share his thoughts on the New Evangelization.

The entire documentary, which is being released this fall, consists of 10 episodes covering aspects of the Catholic faith, along with spiritual and artistic treasures as they have never been seen before. As part of a global journey to showcase Catholic heritage, Fr. Barron travels to more than 16 countries exploring what Catholics believe and why. He details everything from the most controversial questions about the life and identity of Jesus Christ to the Church’s teachings about Mary as the mother of God; the Catholic vision of death, judgment, heaven, hell, and purgatory; and some of the Church’s greatest heroes.

Fr. Barron, the Francis Cardinal George Professor of Faith and Culture at Mundelein Seminary, is the founder of Word on Fire, a nonprofit media organization that supports Catholic evangelical preaching. Many of the programs that Word on Fire produces are broadcast regularly on WGN America, Relevant Radio, CatholicTV, EWTN, and the Word on Fire YouTube channel and website.
