PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, JUNE 12, 2009 (Zenit.org).- The Caribbean School for Catholic Communication in Port of Spain is launching a new program to teach evangelization through technology.

In a press release today, Aid to the Church in Need announced the new Pastoral Communications Diploma, which will begin next January.

The school was opened 15 years ago, as an initiative of the University of Dayton along with the Living Water community, a Catholic lay organization that runs television and radio stations in the country.

The aid agency underlined the importance of this endeavor, which they are supporting with a grant, as a response to Benedict XVI’s call for evangelization through the media.

The course emphasizes «the importance of spiritual and moral grounding as the underlying basis for the communication skills» with a special focus on developing these capacities within the Caribbean.

Courses include audio and interpersonal communication, film and visual media, and print and new digital technology.

Some 900 men and women from various Caribbean countries have studied at the school since its beginning in 1995.
