JOURNALISM ‘I thank God for these three learning years. The striking message that will always remain with me is my call to be different as a Catholic Journalist. The skills and discipline learned will last a lifetime. Sr Elma Gustave St Lucia


CSCC is the acronym for the Caribbean School for Catholic Communication. The school operates on a three year cycle. At the end of years one and two participants receive a certificate of participation and at the end of the third year, they are awarded a diploma from the University of Dayton, Ohio. The theme for the 2007-2009 three year cycle is “Communications-New Pathways to God”

Correctly encoding and decoding what is being said by considering historical backgrounds, is the most important learning for me this year.
