About the Program

Challenge, Change, Faith is a new documentary, which looks at the Catholic Church in Australia during the one of the most dynamic periods in history. The Second Vatican Council (1962-65) set the framework for Catholicism into the 21st century. Through the personal stories of eminent and ordinary Australians Challenge, Change, Faith explores how the Second Vatican Council changed Catholic life and why.

Challenge, Change, Faith is an educational documentary developed for secondary students. This program has been developed in consultation with the Catholic Education Office (Melbourne) and is designed to complement existing Religious Education curricula through years 9-11. For classroom application the program has been segmented into three 15-minute chapters, which can be viewed independently or as a stand-alone 45-minute program. Each DVD contains teaching notes, fact sheets, document extracts and background information.
