Final St. Margaret Ward film

In 2010 Mary's Dowry Productions recreated some key moments from the life of English Saint Margaret Ward.
In 2007 Mary’s Dowry productions created a new form of film media to present the lives of the saints. Mary’s Dowry Productions recreates stunning silent visuals, informative, devotional narration, and original contemplative music that touches your spirit to draw you into a spiritual encounter with the saint. Watch with your spiritual eye, listen with your spiritual ear. Our films seek to offer a window into the lives of our saints. Using your spiritual senses we invite you to shut out the world, sit prayerfully and peacefully and go on a journey of faith, history and prayer with this inspiring Elizabethan Saint.

For our film about Saint Margaret Ward we went to the Weald and Downland Museum near Chichester where we filmed inside an original 16th century farmhouse, showing Saint Margaret at prayer, planning missions and preparing to assist imprisoned priests.
Saint Margaret Ward was a young Catholic Elizabethan woman who lived during a troubled time in English history. She loved the Catholic Church, priests and all around her and especially wished to assist those in need of relief.

Although the times were dangerous, Saint Margaret Ward had a courage and joyful spirit. She bravely placed others before herself in order to render them help.

to visit condemned priests. Secretly she smuggled in rope to help them escape.
