It is the purpose of the author to present in detail the theological, philosophical, and educational presuppositions and understandings of the Educational Center and indicate their application to the Center's unique educational method. In Chapter Two those concepts are presented and terms defined which express the Center's view of existence, its religious dimensions, its relationship to the Christian faith, and its implications for the educational task of the Church. Chapter Three presents an overview of the Center's methodology and its application to the structure of particular courses and the development of educational programs at the parish level. In Chapter Four areas for further study are suggested and an evaluation offered. The appendices contain a current list of intensive courses available through the Educational Center and a sample lesson plan illustrating the structure of a class session.
