CNN visits Saint Mary-of-the-Woods to research Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
Cable News Network (CNN) producer Jen Christensen visited Saint Mary-of-the-Woods Saturday, Oct. 22, to witness the Sisters of Providence Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Fest and to do research on the Congregation’s foundress.
Jen hooked up with a video specialist, Jeff from Indianapolis, and spent most of the day Saturday witnessing the Foundation Day Eucharistic Liturgy, learning about the Sisters of Providence, meeting people and touring the grounds.
Jen, based in Atlanta, is leading a team that is researching various aspects of how to become a saint. CNN intends to produce a documentary sometime in January in anticipation of the canonization of Pope John Paul II. Mother Theodore’s journey to sainthood is expected to be shared in a portion of the documentary.
The CNN crew plans to return to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods soon to continue their research and to conduct interviews to support their documentary.
“She’s a classic, All-American story,” Jen in an interview with the Terre Haute Tribune-Star.
