COLF's 2006 Message Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, twelve months a year, the media bombards us with a variety of information and opinions. Their impact on our ways of living and thinking is real and their power is immense. In its 2006 Annual Message to Families, the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) encourages parents and children to become media-savvy consumers, and to get actively involved in the media.

Christ’s disciples have never had access to more powerful and effective means to promote truth, justice and common good. However, we must learn to testify to others about what gives meaning to our lives! This colourful leaflet offers concrete ways to acquire media competence — the “Media Workshop 101”.

With your family, friends and colleagues, at home, in your parish, school or university, learn to speak up on important issues. Here is a valuable resource for the faithful who want to make a difference in Canadian society!

Each year, COLF sends a new message to families. The most recent ones were entitled:

q World Peace: A Family Recipe!”

q
“The Christian Family: Good News for the World”

The Catholic Organization for Life and Family is co-sponsored by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. It promotes respect for human life and dignity, and the essential role of the family.
