On Sunday, June 14th, New Evangelization Television (NET TV) will premiere its original production Custody + Creation, a moving environmental documentary about the care of creation and the role of the faithful.
Assessing the state of the Planet Earth and the imminent threat of climate change, Custody + Creation focuses on the Church’s reaffirmation of the biblical custody of the Earth, the dignity of creation, and human ecology. The documentary comes in anticipation of Pope Francis’ encyclical letter on the environment, to be published on June 18th.
DeSales Media Group, the communications and technology arm of the Diocese of Brooklyn, has launched a new initiative entitled Meet Me in Church (www.meetmein.church). Initially launched to promote the Office of the School of Evangelization’s “Joy of Encountering Christ” program, Meet Me in Church is an open invitation to reconnect and re-engage with the Church, the community, and with God.
The Meet Me in Church website features information about the School of Evangelization’s one-day pilgrimage to the World Meeting of Families, which takes place on Wednesday, September 23rd, in Philadelphia. In coming months, the website will evolve to become an online hub for all diocesan and parish level events. “Meet Me in Church is another step forward in our efforts of evangelization,” said Monsignor Kieran Harrington, Chairman of DeSales Media Group. “Our hope is for everyone to use this new website to stay connected and informed as we grow in our faith.”
This Friday, May 22nd, NET TV’s Gabriel Award-winning series Reel Faith will premiere its sixth summer season. The weekly show, which reviews Hollywood’s biggest films through a Catholic perspective, will be also celebrating its 100th episode this season.
This season’s reviews will include highly-anticipated comic book adaptations like Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man,” and “Fantastic Four;” big-budget sequels like “Jurassic World,” “Terminator: Genisys,” and “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation;” and family fare like Pixar’s “Inside Out,” and DreamWorks Animation’s “Minions.” Reel Faith will also weigh in on a variety of smaller independent films and documentaries.
