New Look

We have hit the refresh button for the Sunday Mass graphics! Using stained glass windows as inspiration, the new Sunday Mass graphics capture the true beauty of the Our Lady Chapel at St. Joseph’s Cathedral. Created by Buffalo artist Otto Andrle in 1924; these stained glass windows where originally from the St. Joseph's RC New Cathedral, that was built between 1912-1915. After the St. Joseph's RC New Cathedral was demolished in 1976, the windows were moved to the "old" Cathedral on Franklin Street to the Our Lady Chapel. Each graphic uses a section of these beautiful windows, as a background for a prayer. Tune in to the Sunday Televised Mass on Sunday December 20th at 7:30am on Time Warner Cable channel 20 to see the latest graphics!

Sunday Televised Mass
Tuesday, November 17, 2015 by Paula DeAngelis-Stein

The Sunday Televised Mass is recorded in the Our Lady Chapel of St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Buffalo. This Mass airs on WUTV-Fox 29 at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings and at various times on cable.

     In 2013, Pope Francis announced a Year of Consecrated Life, which concludes on February 2, 2016.  In order to recognize these women and men religious, we asked them to take a more active role in TV Mass, as presiders and lectors. 

    Celebrating Mass with fresh faces, inspired us to invite new lectors, priests, deacons and musicians to this ministry.  We have even asked students to get involved. In an upcoming Mass, grils from the St. Monica Campus of Nativity Miguel Middle School, participate as an altar server and as lectors.  By welcoming people from across the eight countries of Western New York, the word of God enters into the home of the viewers in a more diverse fashion.   

     The Sunday Televised Mass is not meant to replace the pastoral ministry of prayer and visitation in a parish, but as an addition to it. This ministry brings the liturgy into the homes of those who may not otherwise be able to physically attend a Mass.

Exploring Consecrated Life
Thursday, July 30, 2015 by Paula DeAngelis-Stein
In every age there have been men and women called to religious life.  They have helped to make our schools, neighborhoods, hospitals, parishes, and world stronger. This year of Consecrated Life is our opportunity to acknowledge what they have done and pray for their strength to carry on.
      In 2013, Pope Francis announced a Year of Consecrated Life. This worldwide celebration began on the first Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014, and will culminate on February 2, 2016, the World Day of Consecrated Life.
     Pope John Paul II described consecrated life as “the many branches, which sinks its roots into the Gospel and brings forth abundant fruit in every season of the Church’s life.”
     To help celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life, Daybreak TV Productions is working with Sr. Jean Thompson OSF, Vicar for Religious of the diocese of Buffalo. Sr. Jean received a grant from the Bishop’s Council of the Laity, to produce short videos, highlighting consecrated women and men religious in the diocese of Buffalo. These vignettes will be distributed via social media and be used as part of other programs produced by Daybreak TV.  

      Fr. James Vacco, OFM, pastor at St. Bonaventure Parish in Allegany, NY,  Adjunct Faculty at St. Bonaventure University in Olean, NY and at Christ the King Seminary in East Aurora, NY is one of six consecrated religious, in this series of videos designed to highlight the charism of each community.  Also being featured are Fr. Edward Durkin, SJ, Sr. Timothy Howard, OSP,  Sr. Jenny Wilson, RSM , Sr. Jeremy Midura, CSSF and Sr. Beth Brosmer, OSF.
