N Richland Hills, TX (November 1, 2012) - Homeschool Connections, the original source for online video courses for Catholic families, announces the release of the first DVD of the Catholic History Video Project. The Project is a series of teaching DVDs explaining the Catholic Church's contributions in history. The DVDs are designed for individuals and families and are appropriate for both home and schools, with content suitable for all ages.

Families benefit from the DVDs' ability to help children understand faith as it relates to history and the Church. Homeschools and private schools benefit from the DVDs' strong educational curriculum, meeting the need for teaching foundational history, as it relates to the Church.

The Catholic History Video Project was created by Homeschool Connections high school history teacher, Phillip Campbell. Phillip combines a love of history with the Catholic faith, adding a quirky sense of humor and creativity to the documentary-style DVDs. The result is a documentary that is both fun and informational.

The first DVD, Origins of Christian Monasticism, is complete and available for mail order. This DVD focuses on the historical contribution of monasticism - the way of life that involves renouncing worldly pursuits to fully devote one's self to spiritual work - during the Early Middle Ages. Widespread distribution is scheduled for November 2012.

Script and story boards are completed for the next video in the series, which focuses on the Conquistadors, and filming has begun. The second DVD's release is planned for the spring of 2013. Future topics will include the Crusades, Scholasticism, Counter-Reformation, Modern Church History, and more.
