This film was produced entirely by volunteers during the summer of 2020 by Solenne Santiago for her American Heritage Girls Stars & Stripes project. Over 1800 service hours went into the making of this film, in the hopes that it would allow more Catholics to come to believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
