The Church Alive is a fast-paced, segmented and interactive show hosted by Cheridan Sanders and Sebastian Gomes of Salt and Light Television in Canada. The 15-part series, produced for the Year of Faith and on the 50th Anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, provides an exciting and inspiring show that highlights the broad and inclusive nature of Catholicism by sharing perspectives and stories on the New Evangelization in the Church today. By encouraging interaction and participation with viewers through web based polls, video responses, and Twitter, Facebook, and email comments, we hope to ignite a renewed faith and hope among Catholics around the world.
