Review: The first thing a thoughtful viewer of Lifetime's new TV show will keep in mind is that "The Sisterhood" is a "reality" series that really isn't.
The 86th Academy Awards are Sun., March 2; Charity Sr. Rejane Cytacki never misses them, and this year she finds inspiration in three films that are powerful testimonies to the strength of the human spirit.
Sr. Rose Pacatte, a member of the Daughters of St. Paul who writes and speaks about film, has been named the recipient of the Daniel J. Kane Religious Communications Award, given by the Institute for Pastoral Initiatives at the University of Dayton.
Pacatte will receive her award March 6 as part of the institute's Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation's Diocesan Partners Convocation. The award is given for the use of mass media to communicate Gospel values.
