What’s Going On?

What’s Going On?

Most people know that 795 Main Street in Buffalo, NY is home to Central Administration for the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo. But, have you ever wondered, what do all these different departments do, what are they responsible for, what are they planning that will help people in our Diocese?


We did, so we grabbed our equipment and started to pop-in on people in different departments to find the answer. So far we have heard about: the March for Life from the Pro-Life Department, the Youth Convention from a Diocesan Youth Board Member, an upcoming Social Media Workshop from the Communication Department and a new initiative for a Parish Addiction Advocate which is coming out of the Family Life Department.


There are many departments at 795 Main Street, and the good people who work in them are striving to help those in our diocese. So, keep a look out for these short, inspiring posts! They can be seen on the Daybreak TV Productions Facebook page. Please remember to “like” and share our posts.

Daybreak is proud to be part of the Catholic Charities 2018 Campaign

Daybreak is proud to be part of the Catholic Charities 2018 Campaign entitled “love your neighbor”, by producing a “two story” video project that has been in the works since the summer of 2017.

The video features the Multisystemic Therapy Program (MST) which enriches families and addresses youth problematic behaviors.
In their story, a teen, Rachaele and her mother Jessica reveal how their lives were positively changed following the resources and help they received from Catholic Charities.

Another Catholic Charities program featured is Project HOPE(Helping Older People Excel)which provides assistance for individuals that are 60 years of age or older, with a mental health diagnosis.
The video explains how Mark, a senior with mental and physical disabilities, has undergone “life – changing experiences” through the help of his counselor John and the staff at Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities Mission has been protecting, strengthening and empowering the people of Western New York since 1923 and Daybreak is honored to help share their stories.

Father David Richards is featured in "National Catholic Register"


Father David Richards is featured in "National Catholic Register." In a Word segments are short, fast-paced videos that deliver a solid Catholic message for youth ages 13-19.

“Daybreak called me and wanted to discuss the idea of doing YouTube videos geared toward middle- and high-school students,” said Father Richards, who was recently appointed administrator at Our Lady of Pompeii parish in Lancaster, New York. “They told me I would be a good fit.”

“Daybreak was experimenting with programming ideas directed toward a younger audience for a couple of years when the concept for In A Word evolved,” explained Claire Rung, executive producer for Daybreak TV Productions in the Diocese of Buffalo. “The reviews have been very good. We are happy with the initial view count, ranging from 500-3,000, without a promotions budget. Young people are beginning to like our Facebook and YouTube channel.”

Said Father Richards, “The videos are like a minute-long homily” that cover topics like body image, sin, loss, saints, peace and the future.

“These quick YouTube videos are key in attracting young people; you have to speak their language,” said the internet-savvy priest.

For example, in his video “Decisions,” Father Richards tells viewers that every decision they make is a choice. “Saying ‘Yes’ to one thing means saying ‘No’ to another. Decisions affect others, ourselves and God.” He adds that every decision, even the little ones, either good or bad, have consequences.

He goes on to quote St. Francis de Sales, who said, “Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and be that perfectly.”

Father Richards concludes the video by saying: “God made us for a good purpose, and we should do everything we can in our daily lives to live that out by the decisions we make.” Christine A. Smyczynski writes from Getzville, New York.
