Miles Christi: Soldiers of Christ in America Film

StoryTel ON ASSIGNMENT investigates a vibrant new order of priests and brothers from Argentina dedicated to helping lay Catholics grow in holiness. In a culture flooded with relativism, secularism and consumerism, Miles Christi – translated "Soldier of Christ" – fights to restore a Christ-centered life one soul at a time.

Filmed on location in Argentina and Michigan, this unprecedented documentary offers the rare chance to go behind the walls of the Miles Christi religious community to discover its courageous calling and joyful, yet determined, spirit. ON ASSIGNMENT uncovers the story of the order's founding and its important work to preach the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius across the United States. In-depth interviews with Miles Christi members, a beautiful original music score, and rich cinematography create a powerful experience that will inspire you to fight for holiness in your own life.
