The Canisius College Video Institute production of the March episode of “Kaleidoscope” premiered earlier this month on WGRZ-TV 2. This 30-minute television program celebrates the religious diversity of our region and is produced in conjunction with the Network of Religious Communities. “Kaleidoscope” will rebroadcast on Friday, March 24 at 6:35 p.m. on Time Warner Cable 20, and Sunday, March 26 at 8:00 p.m. on Time Warner 6 in Olean.

In the first segment, host Stan Bratton, PhD, talks with Rev. Lee Miller of the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, about the meaning and commemoration of Lent. The pair also discusses the upcoming joint Roman Catholic and Lutheran Vesper Service commemorating the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation.

In the second segment, Rabbi Alex Lazarus-Klein and Cantor Arlene Frank, both of the congregation Shir Shalom, discuss Purim, a Jewish holiday that commemorates the saving of the Jewish people from Haman and how it is celebrated today.

Students in the Canisius College Video Institute produce “Kaleidoscope” under the guidance of Jamie O’Neil, associate professor of digital media arts and co-director of the Video Institute, and Paula DeAngelis-Stein ’86, MS ’02, a producer with Daybreak Productions, the broadcast arm of the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo.
