Are you 18 years or over? Are you interested in the new social media and communications? Are you a disciple of Jesus? Do you want to effectively communicate and inspire your faith in this digital age?
Come and join our animated team of expert social media consultants who are ready to share their practical wisdom and best practices with you. No matter how little or how much you know about social media, the Caribbean School for Catholic Communications (CSCC) adapts to meet your pastoral needs.
The programme format includes:
TED Talks by Catholic media professionals
Group online research and interaction
Practical, hands-on media experience using the latest digital tools
Practical production design & developmental planning through the comprehensive CSCC Guide Book.
One-on-one mentoring with Catholic communication consultants
Advanced production training for diocesan media personnel
Some of our objectives:
To introduce participants to the practical skills of integrated pastoral communications planning, in order to spark the religious imagination of our parishes, (arch) dioceses and local communities
To offer participants creative opportunities to identify a variety of both digital media techniques and faith-dialogue for inspiring a “new way of being Church in the 21st Century”
To offer practical communications ministry skills to animate diocesan and parish communities for becoming ‘witnessing communities’ that encourage a real experience of the New Evangelisation
To nurture a digital community of disciples within the Caribbean to support and inspire the mission and vision of the Church for inviting all to a deeper encounter with Jesus Christ
To collaborate throughout the AEC with the aim of establishing a firm Integrated Pastoral Communications Plan for supporting (arch) diocesan, parish and ministry programmes across the board
