What is the VLCFF History?
Based upon over twenty years experience in multimedia and distance learning, the VLCFF team began exploring new alternative models via the Internet and ISDN (Integrated Systems Digital Network - live video conferencing) systems for adult faith formation in 1995. A preliminary grant from the University of Dayton and support from the Marianist Foundation enabled the VLCFF to come to fruition. Initial courses were test piloted in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. In 1999 new courses were developed and the door opened to small rural dioceses. Nine dioceses joined the second phase of expansion. The third phase of expansion (2001) now invites additional dioceses to become a VLCFF partner.

Who Sponsors the VLCFF?
The VLCFF is sponsored by the Institute for Pastoral Initiatives (IPI) of the University of Dayton - a Catholic Marianist Institution. 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.
