New York Faith based recording studio is live-streaming a Catholic music channel

2016-04-24

Quiet Waters Media is a not-for-profit corporation and an audio-video recording studio based in Buffolo, New York, that is helping Catholics spread the word of Christ. It is an outlet where young people are able to express themselves creatively through visual and audio storytelling.

"Quiet waters media started out making rosary musicals, they traveled in a group of maybe 40 people, from parish to parish, singing the mysteries of the rosaries. Out of this grow a little media apostolate. They had the recording studio equipment, they had the video camera equipment, and they decided to start a studio house to teach young people how to use these tools of modern communications.”

Quiet Waters Media has come up with a unique way to spread the Catholic movement in the Northwestern part of the United States and abroad, in places like Rome, Italy.

"They collaborate very closely with the station of the cross, WLOF, which is a media apostolate that has radio station that you can listen to online, kind of like a Catholic Spotify.”

The recording studio has launched several recording projects for young Contemporary Christian musicians, a weekly music program and a live-streaming radio station. 

Since 2005, Rebecca Pawloski has been in charge of a summer youth media program in Rome, with events that encourages creative workshops for youths between 13 to18 years of age. In lieu of the upcoming World Youth Day in Poland, the youth program is appropriately titled "Srodowiskos.”

"It's really deepened to be a community experience and I think a turning point for us was when we gave a name to our summer program. We decided to call it 'Srodowiskos.' 'Srodowiskos' is a Polish word which means milieu. It's the word that Pope John Paul II used to describe his milieu of young people.” 

Rebecca wants to ensure that the program remains true to its cause by dedicating the content to the unity, prayer of the faith and community, especially among young people. 

Quiet Waters Media has an easy-to-use website and YouTube channel where you can listen to live feeds on any mobile device and online on iCatholic Radio.
