Watch May’s Episode of Kaleidoscope

Pentecost, Ramadan topics of this month’s program

The Canisius College Video Institute production of the May episode of “Kaleidoscope” premiered earlier this month on WGRZ-TV Channel 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” rebroadcasts each Friday at 6:30 p.m. on Spectrum Cable Channel 20 and each Sunday 8:00 p.m. on Spectrum Channel 6 in Olean, NY.

In the first segment, host Stan Bratton, PhD, talks with Fr. Greg Jakubowicz, OFM, campus minister, St. Joseph University Church, about the meaning and commemoration of Pentecost, and the Franciscan orders, to which he belongs.

In the second segment, Bratton speaks with Imam Adnan Ahmed of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community about the meaning of Ramadan, keeping the Ramadan fast and the Ahmadiyya Muslim community.

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.
