Anglican Studies Program

Anglican ShieldThe Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia has long expressed an ecumenical partnership with the ECUSA through a relationship with the Diocese of Pennsylvania. For more than thirty-five years Episcopal seminarians have been receiving theological education at LTSP.  In today’s climate, we welcome those who are seeking formation, education and opportunity in both lay and ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church.

Whether beginning your theological education closer to home before placement at an Episcopal seminary or taking the opportunity to study with an excellent faculty in such an ecumenical environment, we welcome your interest in the Anglican Studies program.  The experience of education and formation that LTSP offers, with the concentration in Anglican studies, expresses, we believe, the best of the Common Mission to which we are called.
