Your Gift Will Help Us Tell Life-Changing Stories


Stories of Hope That Must Be Told

Presented over six short films, Restored: Stories of Encounter will explore the profoundly beautiful lives of ordinary people who have encountered Christ and have dedicated their lives to giving others the chance to do the same. These fascinating contemporary stories of conversion, inspiration, and radical humility illustrate that Christ’s call to sainthood is achievable.


The Power of Witness

Thanks to the good work of many Catholic organizations, the Church is full of dynamic programs and products for catechesis and faith formation. This documentary series will be something different. In a time where people struggle to see beauty, goodness, and truth in the world, we aim to provide hope and renewal as we glimpse into the lives of everyday heroes who have been changed by their encounter with Jesus Christ. So, although this series may teach us about the love of God, it's not about catechesis ... it's about witness.

Saint Joseph Communications started back in the early 1980s when we were recording and distributing talks by a (then) unknown convert and speaker named Dr. Scott Hahn. Since then, we have been finding and sharing thousands of talks, films, and books from some of the most compelling voices in the Church. We are proud to support the growing ranks of content creators faithful to the Catholic Church—each with a unique, creative way to facilitate an encounter with Jesus Christ.
