Church Without Borders

Aired 2000-01. “Church Without Borders" offers a close look at some of the people who are living along the 2,000 mile border between Mexico and the United States, where Anglo, Spanish, and Indigenous cultures have co-existed for centuries, and examines the Catholic Church's cross border pastoral efforts in light of those realities. From the Church's perspective, here are spiritual brothers and sisters in need, not different nationalities. The program also depicts this spiritual solidarity by going to Chile, where recent U.S. college graduates are deferring the start of their professional careers in order to devote their time in service to the marginalized people of rural and urban areas. "Church Without Borders" also shows that those in need in the U.S. can be the recipients of aid when the program profiles work done by Chilean students in Boston's inner city.
