Description

This paper focuses specifically on the Institute of Pastoral Studies (IPS) as one of several examples of: (1) an innovate, adaptable graduate school program within a major Catholic, Jesuit university; and (2) as an educator of Catholic school personnel: classroom religion teachers, administrators, campus ministers, and directors of mission within Catholic schools. The thesis of this paper is that the vision of church incarnated in Catholic schools by graduates of pastoral programs in American Catholic universities has played a significant role in revolutionizing both the teaching of religion and the overall identity of Catholic schools in this country these past fifty years.
