JP Catholic Students Make Video For Upcoming Papal Visit!!!

This is not, strictly speaking, a biblical-theological post, but I'm so proud of our students that I had to run it here...

The Bishop of San Diego came to John Paul the Great Catholic University ("JP Catholic" for short) with a request. As you probably know, Pope Benedict XVI is coming to America this month. During one of the events a few dioceses from around the country will be displaying a video on a mega-screen that will be viewed by thousands of pilgrims for a papal event. The Bishop asked our students to put together a short piece for the diocese of San Diego.

It was a real honor... and our students--only in their second year--did not disappoint, delivering an extremely professional looking video. The work is even more impressive given that they were only given one week to get it done! As Tim Evans, one of our students, put it on his blog, "How awesome is it, by the way, that one of my first film projects, and the first I help with that is shown on a big screen, is made especially for the Holy Father?!"

Take a look:


If you or someone you know is looking to explore a college degree in media and looking to do so from a Catholic perspective, check out our school's website: http://www.jpcatholic.com/ --it's an incredible place!

Nice to see some projects coming out of JP Catholic. I actually thought about going there, but then I decided to go school in LA.

Pax Christi, Rebecca.
