The Canisius College Video Institute production of the June episode of “Kaleidoscope” premieres on Saturday, June 6 at 5:30 a.m. on WGRZ-TV 2. This 30-minute television program celebrates the religious diversity of the region and is produced in conjunction with the Network of Religious Communities. “Kaleidoscope” is rebroadcast each Friday at 6:30 p.m. on Spectrum Cable 20 and each Sunday at 8:00 p.m. on Charter 6 in Olean, NY.

In the first segment, program host Stan Bratton, PhD, executive director of the Network of Religious Communities, speaks with Buxees Singh about the life and significance of Guru Arjan, the fifth Guru and a martyr who was known for contributing to and compiling the Sikh Scriptures, as well as for his teaching that Sikhism is open to all, regardless of caste.

Pentecost is the commemoration of the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples of Jesus, and it marks the beginning of the Christian Church. Bratton interviews Rev. Jeff Carter, of Ephesus Ministries, about Pentecost and the Pentecostal movement.

Students in the Canisius College Video Institute produce “Kaleidoscope” under the guidance of Barbara J. Irwin, PhD, professor in the Department of Communication and co-director of the Video Institute, Jamie O’Neil, associate professor of Digital Media Arts and co-director of the Video Institute, and Paula DeAngelis-Stein ’86, MS ’02.
