I am the course facilitator for the intro to media literacy course; another fine catechist will facilitate Church and Communication.If your diocese is a VLCFF Partner (click here to check) the cost for each five week course is only $40.00 (otherwise $75.00).
In terms of time, there are five week-long sessions for each course. On average you would want to reserve one hour a day to complete the work that requires some reading, interactive exchanges, and responses to the reading and each week’s material in semi-essay form. The fruit of your dedication will be renewed energy in your faith life and ministry. And it’s not only what you will learn; your contribution will enliven the interaction and your experience will enrich us all.
The deadline for registration is May 26th. Don’t miss this opportunity! Five weeks goes by so swiftly.
Feel free to contact me here if you have any questions or go directly to the VLCFF website.
