I have just received this from a fellow member of the Una Voce Federation. Sounds interesting !
One of the obstacles for priests celebrating the TLM can be their lack of knowledge of Latin.
"The Sapientis Institute (http://sapientisinstitute.org/home.html) is making 10 places available to clergy, religious and seminarians who would like to learn Latin. This is a Beginner’s Latin class which has started and so it would be wise to encourage clergy to get signed up soon.. The course is free to the first ten clergy, religious, or seminarians who apply.
Lectures are delivered live in an on-line classroom that allows students to see the lecturer and follow his presentation. This allows students to study from home. Students can use a mic. to communicate with the lecturer. All lectures are recorded and are available for students to download. Homework assignments and self-assessment test can be sent to the lecturer for correction.
Course details can be found at http://sapientisinstitute.org/courses/beginninglatin.html
Applicants merely need to send an e-mail expressing their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. "
These courses are offered only in English. Although officially 10 places are available the Sapientis Institute will do their best to extend the offer to as many clergy as possible.
If you have blogs/websites feel free to post this offer on them. If you know of laity who are looking for a Latin course it would be a kindness if you could also notify them of the course. Having paying students allows the Sapientis Institute to offer the course to clergy for free.
"The course is also open to non-clergy/religious. All students can take advantage of a three lecture trial period. During the trial period they can attend the lectures, obtained downloads and evaluate if this course suits their needs. Our pricing structure is unique. Course fees cover every one in the family as long as they are using one connection to our classroom.
To register for the free trial offer go to http://sapientisinstitute.org/trialperiodoffer.html
