In the month of June, the CatholicTV Network begins a new summer season of programming, honors fathers and freedom, and gives kids something to do on vacation.
The network's new season of programming begins June 2. Six new series make their CatholicTV premiere. The original CatholicTV series Christian Witness features returning hosts Drs. Angela and David Franks. In this 13-part series, they will be joined by different guests discussing the various aspects of the New Evangelization. Reel Faith features David DiCerto and Steven Greydanus reviewing movies “through a Catholic lens.” Divine Intervention with Father Steve Porter is a reality series he calls “an entertainment show that happens to star a Catholic priest.” What's in the Bible is a family show that explores the Bible with music and puppets and aims to teach about God's word with learning and laughter. Jim Grant co-hosts the series Gospel of Luke with Dr. Robert Maldonado, as they share their insights into and love for Luke. Love is Moving challenges young adults to live the Christian life with acts of love in their daily life.
