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 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.
