Mark Derwin, star of “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” & “Life with Bonnie” and upcoming “Anatomy of Hope” speaks to media literacy course participants





And, if you can believe it, I missed it.

I double booked myself and had committed to giving a “Meeting Jesus at the Movies” presentation with Sr. Gretchen Hailer, RSHM, at St. Kilian’s Parish in Mission Viejo (which was so much fun; what a wonderful, welcoming parish. They have 68 different ministries going on …. this one was for a family faith formation program they have every summer Backyard Theology (including BBQ).

Anyway, Mark came and chatted with the media literacy certificate course participants about being part of the television industry as an actor and as a believer.  The students were still smiling when they arrived for class this morning (and swiftly departed for a tour of Sony Studios down the street….)

Participants in the media literacy certificate course are from Singapore, Rome, Philadelphia, Delaware, Chicago, Texas, and SoCal!

Here is a link to Mark Derwin on IMDB.
