New documentary tells the complicated history of Philadelphia’s Catholic communities


    The character of Philadelphia has been largely shaped by the dominance of the city’s Catholic population. 

    That influence on history will be explored in the documentary “Urban Trinity: The Story of Catholic Philadelphia.”  It’s the latest project of History Making Productions.

    NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller spoke with Sam Katz, executive producer and director of the film.
