CNN to rebroadcast documentary on Saint Mother Theodore Guerin

Television network CNN will rebroadcast its documentary report on the process of becoming a saint in the Roman Catholic Church on Saturday, March 10.

The report, first shown on Sunday, March 3, features Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Ind.

The proposed rebroadcast schedule is 8 p.m., 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. (EST) on March 10. The schedule is subject to breaking news.

CNN producer Jen Christensen led the reporting team from CNN’s Special Investigations and Documentary Unit. She made three trips to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods with photojournalists to do research and record the video. Correspondent Drew Griffin, an Emmy Award winner, did an extensive interview with Sister Marie Kevin Tighe, who served as vice postulator and promoter of the Cause for Saint Mother Theodore Geurin.

Saint Mother Theodore Guerin and five companion sisters came to the United States from France in 1840, arriving first in southern Indiana and traveling through Vincennes and the dense forest terrain in western Indiana to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

Pope Benedict XVI canonized Saint Mother Theodore on Oct. 15, 2006, in Rome.
