"Consider this..." videos
Daybreak TV at the Diocese of Buffalo is proud to part of the 2016 Catholic Charities campaign with the production of “Open Hearts Change Lives” video. Under the direction of Sr. Mary McCarrick, Rose Caldwell and Stephanie Brown from Catholic Charities, Daybreak TV was able to capture the essence of true life changing experiences that Catholic Charities of Buffalo has brought to two families. Produced by Robert Karaszewski, Jr., this video brings awareness to the Foster Care and Adoption Program, and theMonsignor Carr Institute Children's Clinic, and will be used on-line, for television broadcast, and for distribution to donors to help reach this year’s annual goal.
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!
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.
