WLAE and EWTN showing “We Shall Not Be Moved”

Written on: August 21, 2015

In commemoration of the 10 years of rebirth since Hurricane Katrina’s landfall in New Orleans, SC Ministry Foundation is pleased to share with you that the story of Catholic Sisters’ dedication to rebuilding their beloved city will be broadcast locally in Southwest Louisiana as well as across the world through newly scheduled broadcasts.

Featured in the film are the following Congregations and ministries:

  • Ursuline Sisters  – Ursuline Academy
  • Congregation of Our Lady of Mount Carmel – Mount Carmel Academy, Cub Corner
  • Sisters of the Holy Family of New Orleans – St. Mary’s Academy, Lafon Nursing Home
  • Marianites of Holy Cross – Holy Angels Center
  • Congregation of St. Joseph  – People Program
  • Society of St. Teresa of Jesus (Teresian Sisters)

Filmed on location in New Orleans six years after Katrina, this program features images of the hurricane damage and interviews with the Sisters who not only survived the flooding but rebuilt their ministries in the city they have loved and served. “This analysis elevates the program from the level of a ‘Katrina brick-and-mortar rebuilding chronicle’ to a complex and fascinating journey with religious women who faced an uncertain personal and public future,” said Sister of St. Francis of Sylvania, Judith Ann Zielinski, the film’s writer and producer for NewGroup Media, South Bend, IN.

Sister Camille Ann Campbell, O Carm, president of Mount Carmel Academy, an all-girls Catholic high school, was one of the Sisters interviewed in the film. “We learned from that experience lessons that only life can teach you and that only faith can make meaningful,” she shared.

“We Shall Not Be Moved: The Catholic Sisters of New Orleans” will be broadcast through WLAE,  New Orleans Public Television on:  Sunday, August 23, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. Central Time.

WLAE is broadcasting the film to kick off a week-long schedule of programming to remember the 10th anniversary of the storm’s devastation to New Orleans and how the city and its residents rebounded. For more information, visit: www.wlae.com/slide/katrina
