A chance encounter in New Orleans in the summer of 2009 with an enthusiastic group of youth missioners from the Episcopal Diocese of Western New York, prompted Jim Melchiorre, senior video producer for Trinity Wall Street, to bring his video crew from New York City to Buffalo last fall. The crew's assignment: to tell about outreach efforts sponsored by Episcopal churches here.
The resulting video, "Refuge and Rebirth: The Church in Western New York," pays homage to Buffalo's impressive history, while it meets our region's current difficulties head on. Yet it is the ministries of hope and goodwill found in Episcopal churches in Western New York today that emerge as the real stars. You can watch the video at http://www.episcopalwny.org
