'PICTURING MARY' TO DEBUT IN PHILADELPHIA ON CHRISTMAS EVE

Picturing Mary, a high-definition one-hour documentary that explores how images of the Blessed Virgin Mary reflect the traditions and cultures of the people who create them, is set to debut this month on public television stations across the country. Picturing Mary is narrated by actress Jane Seymour and includes masterpieces and little-known works of art. Picturing Mary will air in the Philadelphia area on Sunday, December 24, 2006 at 3:00 p.m. on WHYY and WHYY-HD.

The artwork featured throughout the program was filmed in their original settings where they were intended to be viewed hundreds of years ago, in eight countries including Italy, Belgium, Mexico and Ethiopia.

Picturing Mary is in collaboration with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB), Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) and New York public television 13/WNET. For more information about Picturing Mary, please visit www.picturingmary.com.
