From families looking for inspirational entertainment; to film and “old Hollywood” enthusiasts; to students of film and faith: there’s something for everyone here, free for anyone in the world, 24/7.
All these inspiring programs are brought to you by Family Theater Productions, founded by Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., a humble Irish priest and media pioneer.
Father Peyton advocated family prayer, especially the Rosary, and effectively used radio, TV and film to reach out to as many families as possible. Through media, Father Peyton became a household name in the 1950’s and 60’s. His popular messages, “The family that prays together stays together” and “A world at prayer is a world at peace,” are still recognized and needed around the world. Father Peyton spoke and prayed with more than 28 million people during his worldwide travel while hosting Rosary Rallies and he produced more than 700 radio and TV programs which translated to over 10,000 broadcasts featuring hundreds of Hollywood celebrities.
Father Peyton died in 1992 however, he left behind an amazing legacy, an enormous archive of inspirational media productions and his media ministry that continues to thrive in Hollywood today, Family Theater Productions. In honor of Father Peyton’s cause for sainthood being considered by the Vatican, we have opened up our archives to offer samples of his vast body of work and to show some of our more contemporary family, faith-based media projects.
