Loras College Professor Craig Schaefer will introduce this documentary and answer questions following the film. Mathias Loras was born in France during the French Revolution. He eventually finds himself on the frontier edges of civilization in the vast Iowa Territory in 1839. With a handful of immigrant, missionary priests at his side, Bishop Loras would leave a legacy that carries through to this day ...making him not just a man of faith, but a man of deeds.
