A Global Mission of Faith Formation
within the Catholic Church


The Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF) is a growing initiative to offer adult religious education and faith formation anytime and anywhere via the internet. The goal is to support the church's professional ministry of religious education and faith formation in cyberspace.

The VLCFF is coordinated and sponsored by the Institute for Pastoral Initiatives (IPI) at the University of Dayton - a Catholic Marianist Institution.

Our Mission

Our mission is to mobilize the resources of the University of Dayton for partnerships with the Church that create and implement innovative pastoral initiatives designed to meet the needs of the Church and to articulate faith within the context of contemporary culture.

I have experienced several facilitators and they are all very professional and knowledgeable. They are helpful and prayerful. They care about us getting the message and they challenge us in a way that makes us want to challenge ourselves. I am really loving everything about these courses. I am very happy I decided to enroll.
