            PORTLAND HEAD LIGHT 
                   
and the LIGHTHOUSES of
                Maine's Casco Bay
___________________________________

P
ortland Head L
ight is the first and the oldest of all Maine's lighthouses. It is one of the most beautiful lighthouses in America located in Casco Bay at the entrance of Portland Harbor. There was once seven lighthouses (Portland Breakwater, Spring Point Ledge, Ram Island Ledge, Halfway Rock, Portland Head, Cape Elizabeth East and Cape Elizabeth West) that marked
 the waters of Casco Bay and Portland Harbor and one lightship.

Portland Head Light and the Lighthouses of Maine's Casco Bay is our first documentary film that was made with hard work and patience put into it to get the facts and finding the right people such as the Keepers, Historians, Authors and Lightkeepers' descendants. We are so amazed of the many stories that we have learned about which are shared with the viewers. It is in this documentary that we discovered their hardships that no one would probably wish to endure. It is through this documentary that we have such a high regard for the Lightkeepers and could not thank them enough for keeping the lights burning no matter what the weather conditions may be. Above all, they also deserve a high honor, respect and appreciation for saving the lives of the mariners even if it means losing their own lives. Their heroism and courage should never be forgotten. They are truely unsung heroes.

Also, we would like to sincerely thank those who widely opened their doors to us and lent their helping hands without hesitation to finish this documentary and keep this dream a reality.

A truly inspiring documentary about the life and works of the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady, Mother of the Church; theirs is an example of true renewal of religious life called for by the Second Vatican Council; a must see by any woman discerning the possibility of a vocation to consecrated life in our modern day.

Most Reverend Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop Archdiocese of  Chicago


Pearl of Great Price tells the beautiful story of the history, ministry, and community of the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady, Mother of the Church. This documentary explores the simple, faith-filled life of this wonderful congregation of women, who express the love of Jesus to the people they serve, and prayerfully reflect the example of his Blessed Mother Mary to the world around them. Pearl of Great Price is a film of great joy!
