OST Receives Lilly Endowment Grant

Oblate School of Theology recently received a grant of $1 million from Lilly Endowment Inc. to help establish a project, Forming Adaptable Leaders who can (Re)Building Connections in a Suffering and Fragmented Word, that will allow OST to build upon the strengths of the institution to revise academic and financial structures.

The project is being funded through Lilly Endowment’s Pathways for Tomorrow Initiative. It is a three-phase initiative designed to help theological schools across the United States and Canada as they prioritize and respond to the most pressing challenges they faces as they prepare pastoral leaders for Christian congregations both now and into the future.

The goal of the project is to strengthen OST’s capacity to equip pastoral leaders, both clergy and lay professionals, to minister to congregation in imaginative adaptive, fruitful ways.
