Can you believe that it has been 10 years since we began filming for the CATHOLICISM series? To celebrate the incredible impact the series has had over the years, I'd like to invite you to a 10th Anniversary FREE Online Screening Event.

From August 7-16th, you can watch all 10 episodes for FREE at https://CatholicismSeries.com.

If your faith has been strengthened by the series, please share the link above, and this Facebook post, with your friends and family.

Let's introduce the CATHOLICISM series to the whole world, and show them the Truth, Goodness, and Beauty of our Catholic Faith!
