A World Youth Day 2011 and beyond film initiative created by Catholic journalist Suzanne Haugh is scheduled to be featured on EWTN’s “Life on the Rock” program on Thursday, Dec. 2. The program airs at 10 p.m. and is usually later re-aired during the Catholic network’s Friday and Saturday programming.
Haugh, of Louisville, Ky., a Georgia Bulletin contributor and former St. Pius X High School journalism teacher, was interviewed about “Goodness Reigns,” an initiative she developed and directs that challenges youth and young adults to create short films on the Catholic faith in four categories. After the judging process, winners will be displayed online, in a film festival, and be part of a “People’s Choice” online vote. For individuals and groups that are chosen as the award-winners, the prizes include free trips to World Youth Day 2011 in August in Madrid, Spain, or grants for video production equipment.
The inspiration for “Goodness Reigns” comes from the call by recent popes to bring the faith, creativity and technological skills of youth and young adults to spread the Gospel and bring the light and truth of church teachings and sacramental vision to the world in which they live.
Those who would like to enter the film contest must register by Dec. 1 and submit their entry by Jan. 10, 2011. Youth and young adult groups as well as individuals may submit entries. More information is available at www.goodnessreigns.com.
