Enduring Faith: The Story of Native American Catholicism

To begin to understand what it means to be a Catholic in North America, one needs an appreciation for the many Indigenous communities throughout the continent who were practicing their faith centuries before the founding of the United States.

The new K of C-produced documentary Enduring Faith: The Story of Native American Catholicism explores the rich contributions that Indigenous people have made to the Church across several centuries, while examining how Christ reveals himself through the uniqueness of every culture.

Beginning May 16, the film will air on ABC affiliated stations across the United States. To view the complete broadcast schedule, click here.
