As an individual, who has observed the ministerial life of Rev. Thomas J. Quinlan, "TQ," through his service to the membership at St. Mary's Catholic Church, I was able to witness first hand his commitment to sharing the gospel and a determination to speak spiritual truth, as he viewed it. It was his level of intensity to express that truth which provokes me to support the development of this film. TQ has left an imprint in the sands of time. Thus, his story deserves an opportunity to be shared with a community of people that extend beyond the boundaries of the places of his earthly service.

A federal government worker for 28 years, with a deep interest in film and its ability to reveal new sides to social issues. Having been raised in the era of Vatican II, I am concerned about the recent trend to make the Catholic Church less relevant to modern society, and its retreat towards a conservatism that appears to be out of step with the needs of its members. TQ was the kind of thought-provoking leader who can serve as a model to keep the Church aware of its direction and appeal to thinking Catholics.
