Graduates of EPS had training in theology, scripture, liturgy, and other church-related disciplines. Graduates went on to work in religious education, liturgy, ministry to the aging and the terminally ill, social justice, family life, and prison ministry.
I served as an adjunct faculty member at EPS in Washington from 2009-10 and taught theology courses for college-educated adult students in the areas of Christology and Trinitarian theology in an interactive format involving lecture and periods of questions and answers along with student presentations based on a final paper. In these papers, students were asked to respond to a pastoral situation by applying knowledge learned from the course.
The program concluded its 40 years of service to the Archdiocese of Washington in 2010.
