Animated movie stars one of the first female martyrs, Saint Perpetua

Catholic Heros of the Faith presents “The story of St. Perpetua” hoping her faith and martyrdom will inspire the minds of young Catholics with the lives of holy people.

St. Perpetua and her friends were arrested in Carthage, North Africa in 203 A.D and martyred after refusing to renounce their faith. But while she was behind bars she kept detailed accounts of what she was going through, details played out in the film.

The producers say the movie teaches kids about conviction and features what they call “true heros”. While the film depicts intense moments, including the death of St. Perpetua, the film maker says the half-hour DVD is appropriate for kids over 8 years old.

"The Story of St. Perpetua” is the first in a series of animated films ‘Catholic Heros of Faith’ plan to produce including one on life of John Paul II and another on the Blessed Mother Teresa. MCJM-WP-
