The FDLC successfully launched the first four topics.  If you missed them, they have been archived and are still available for purchase:

Accessible and affordable

Take advantage of these very accessible and affordable formation opportunities.  Each virtual workshop is ninety minutes long.   There will be two live sessions per day (to accommodate various time zones) and there is a limit of 100 log-ins per each live session.  But there is no limit to the number of people who can gather around  a parish computer!

Each workshop only costs $15 and includes downloadable handouts.    Even better — you may register for ALL TEN for only $100.
