Where Heaven meets Earth

Readers may remember this inspirational film about St John Cantius in Chicago. 'Where Heaven meets Earth' is another beautifully-produced film about St Peter's Church in Omaha, Nebraska. It is a very similar tale of a church which had fallen into decline, being cut off by a new freeway, in an area which experienced a downturn and a rise in poverty. Fr Damien Cook arrived at the parish in 2004 and immediately set about a Renewal of the Sacred, which has drawn great numbers back to the church. The Blessed Sacrament Procession through the neighbouring streets is particularly impressive and the Pastor also reports a huge rise in the number of boys coming forward as altar servers. The film, produced by the StoryTel Foundation, will air on EWTN on Thursday April 10th at 6:30pm ET, but if you have a spare half hour, you can watch it below:
