ABC to feature New Orleans women religious
Catholic News Service


ABC affiliates will air an hourlong documentary on the response of women religious in New Orleans to the devastation wrought by 2005’s Hurricane Katrina on select Sundays between through Nov. 18.

“We Shall Not Be Moved: The Catholic Sisters of New Orleans” is part of ABC’s four-part “Vision and Values” series. KATU, TV2, Portland, will air this film at 5 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 30.

The longest-serving community profiled is the Ursuline Sisters, who have been in New Orleans since 1727; the “newest” is the Teresian Sisters, in New Orleans since 1915. Other orders featured in the documentary and the first year they arrived in the city are the Carmelites (1835), the Sisters of the Holy Family (1842), the Marianites of Holy Cross (1849) and the Congregation of St. Joseph (1854).

The orders lost ministries to Katrina’s fury, including high schools, child development centers, community centers and a nursing home in which 17 elderly patients died waiting to be rescued. Yet each order overcame obstacles to repair or rebuild their facilities.

A detailed broadcast schedule is available at www.interfaithbroadcasting.com/program_onair.aspx?PID=370.
