Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation

About the VLCFF Partnership with NACAR

Given the broad scope of content, the diverse range of adult interests and responsibilities, and the availability of learning resources, no single approach can meet everyone's needs.

Consequently, a comprehensive, multi-faceted, and coordinated approach to adult faith formation is necessary.

(Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us § 98 §/p. 44)

At this critical time in the Church, associate leadership is a vital resource for reforming the church we love. Lumen Gentium, the Second Vatican Council’s dogmatic constitution on the Church, teaches that “the laity have the right, as do all Christians, to receive in abundance from their spiritual shepherds the spiritual goods of the Church” (37). 

In order to experience ourselves as confident and competent in this role, NACAR is offering this newest member benefit, Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF) courses through the University of Dayton.

These videos explain the relationship with NACAR and gives good information about enrollment.

God is longing for us to grow in knowledge, in communion with other faithful seekers and in our relationship with God’s own self.

The Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF) is an initiative to offer religious education and faith formation for adults anytime and anywhere via the internet.
