Producer-priest sees film work as integral part of his ministry

www.familytheater.org [cached]

Father Guffey started off the production in an unusual way for this Hollywood crew … with a prayer … and they all joined in. He did something that is often unusual in Hollywood. He brought the scheduled 10-day production in a day early.

In this Year for Priests that concludes June 19, Father Guffey sees this work not as an extension of his priestly ministry but an integral part of it. "As the Holy Father has recently been saying, we need to use all the tools available to let people know the Gospel. For me using video and Internet is part of the work of serving people pastorally, listening to what is in people's hearts and offering stories and images to support the best of what it is to be human and Catholic in the world today."
In opening the year on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, June 19, 2009, Pope Benedict XVI said, "I think of all those priests who quietly present Christ's words and actions each day to the faithful and to the whole world, striving to be one with the Lord in their thoughts and their will, their sentiments and their style of life."
Father Guffey through his film work at Family Theater Productions is able to present Christ's words and actions to the masses, while he fully functions as a priest.
At Family Theater Productions, he often celebrates the daily Mass, and he celebrates Mass regularly and participates in the ministry of St. Monica's parish, Santa Monica, where he is in residence.
...
Father Guffey's production roots can be traced to when he was a boy in northwestern Illinois, using his parents' 8 mm camera to make home-made films in his family's basement. Though he took a different vocation path, being ordained a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross on April 4, 1991, that penchant for film never left him.
And through "a long and winding road," on May 11, 2010, he found himself on a film production set in Hollywood managing the schedule and the film crew he assembled as the producer for a half-hour, faith-and-values, TV drama.
Exactly two years earlier, his parents watched him graduate with a Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Film from Loyola Marymount University's Graduate School of Film, Los Angeles. Three days earlier, May 8, 2008, at the LMU film school awards' ceremony, he received the Dean's Award for academic excellence, creativity and service.
And on July 1, 2008, he became the director of Family Theater Productions' Film and Television Department.
...
"That's what's great about Family Theater Productions; those two things come together in a unique way," Father Guffey said.
...
Father Guffey spent six months as an intern at Family Theater Productions starting in January 2005. During that period, he took some film classes at various venues in the Los Angeles area before starting his graduate film studies at LMU that fall.
During his last year of film school, he found time to help with the production crew of the previous two Manifest Mysteries dramas, /Assumptions/ and /Finding Mary/.
