It is in the pursuit of truth for 125 years the legacy of a faith and a people are told.

This is the story of the Catholic News—the second oldest newspaper in the Caribbean after the Jamaica Gleaner with uninterrupted circulation for 125 years—chronicled in the short film ‘The Pursuit of Truth @125’. The short film premieres this Saturday, September 22, 10.45 a.m. at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, MovieTowne, Port of Spain.

It traces the humble beginnings and vision for the paper in 1892 and early production at the compound of Holy Name Convent, 31 St Ann’s Road (later 2 Queen’s Park East) with the Dominican Sisters taking charge of the typography department with help from senior girls who left the Belmont Orphanage.
