Filmed by SaGuarda Studios at Gumley House Convent School on 15th July 2021, the production features stunning performances from Martha Shrimpton, Katie Coen and Caleb Mitchell, provides a fascinating insight into the present day mission of the FCJ society across the globe and celebrates over 200 years of FCJ ministry since its formation in 1820 in France.   


FAITHFUL COMPANIONS explores the inspirational true story of Marie Madeleine d’Houët, foundress of an international Society of Catholic sisters called the Faithful Companions of Jesus. In this original stage production, written produced and directed by Stephen Newbury of RISE Theatre, we see the courageous story of one woman’s fight to address the great need in the world around her in 19th century France and beyond, lived through steadfast devotion to Jesus Christ and responding to God’s call.

Featuring a beautiful soundtrack from BreakAway Music/Scripture Lullabies, Faithful Companions is an enthralling story of faith, love, loss, discernment, vocation, social justice and missionary zeal and provides a fascinating insight into the present day mission of the FCJ Society across the globe.
