During the months of November and December, there will be several opportunities to view Catholicism, a multi-part documentary series that originally aired in over 80 public television markets across the country earlier this fall. Catholicism illustrates the history and treasures of a global religion shared by more than one billion people around the world. The series, created and hosted by Father Robert Barron, is filmed in stunning high-definition and spans more than 50 locations in 15 countries.
Many PBS affiliates have already broadcast the first four episodes of this ten-episode series, and EWTN has scheduled broadcasts of episodes 1 – 5 during the month of November, with additional broadcasts in December. The Media Center currently has two complete copies of Catholicism available for rental, and the entire boxed set is also available for purchase at www.catholicismseries.com.
EWTN is available on Digital Channel 169 for Bright House customers in Orlando; Digital Channel 243/Channel 637 for Comcast customers in Orange, Osceola and Polk counties; Channel 370 for DIRECTV Orlando; and Channel 261/9417 for DISH Orlando customers.
