Good News for the Caribbean
Celebrating 15 years of spreading the Gospel, the Caribbean School for Catholic Communication (CSCC) will be launching a Pastoral Communications Diploma in January 2010. The school and the diploma are the initiative of the Living Water Community a Catholic lay community which runs TV and radio stations in Trinidad & Tobago and the University of Dayton.
Students studying at the school commit to attending an intensive week of seminars and lectures every year for a period of three years. In the first year students will study audio and interpersonal communication, in the second film and visual media, with print and new digital technology being explored in their final year.
The center was set up in response to the 1992 Vatican document on communications Aetatis Novae. According to Sr. Zukowski of Dayton University, “We believe our students need to be embedded with a deep understanding and appreciation of the Church’s Communicative theology [as] expressed in Church documents.”
