Go forth! ANNUAL REPORT 2019â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20
atholic Theological Union began its second halfcentury of graduate theological and ministerial education at a time of national unrest and unease, not altogether unlike the tumult of 1968, when its doors first opened. Fifty years ago racial injustice, environmental negligence, and urban violence were issues that also challenged the nation. Yet what has also remained constant is the unwavering spirit of CTU. Our students, alumni and faculty are agents of change who bring these heady topics into not only the classroom, but our communities as well.
When the COVID-19 pandemic reached Chicago last spring, CTU quickly and seamlessly pivoted to online learning and remote administrative work. Almost immediately, the Bernardin Center rose to the challenge of creating unity in a time of distress by presenting a ten-week long series, A People of Hope, which delivered comfort and hope to hundreds of people who tuned in for these Tuesday evening live broadcasts. The only reason that Catholic Theological Union is able to offer this relevant programming is because of the generosity of our supporters. I was humbled by the generosity of our supporters when our flagship fundraising event, the Blessed are the Peacemakers Trustee Dinner, moved to a virtual venue. Our sponsoring Corporation Community Members, our Board of Trustees and Life Trustees, and many annual supporters exhibited their belief in the mission of CTU. We gratefully met our fundraising goal, even exceeding prior-year levels. Thank you!

Of course, at the center of our fundraising efforts are the women and men who study at CTU and dedicate their lives to ministry. They are the very future of our Church; the men and women who will lead us in prayer, comfort us in moments of loss, teach our children, care for our poor, accompany our students on campus, and bring the presence of Christ into our hospitals and jails. I conclude with an emphatic thank you to the outgoing Chair of our Board of Trustees, Rev. Kurt Hartrich, OFM, and Mrs. Joan Wrenn, the Vice Chair. They welcomed me in 2013 and faithfully served the school through their leadership of the Board. Their warmth and giving spirits have touched our lives, encouraged our dreams, and strengthened our institution. I am most grateful to have walked beside them these many years. Sincerely,
Rev. Mark R. Francis, CSV President

CTU prepares students to Go forth! to bear witness to Christ’s good news in today’s world, a critical step in regaining the credibility of our Church. Through spiritual formation, theological foundation and field education, CTU lay men and women study, work, and serve alongside men and women religious, each respecting and learning from one another. CTU has emerged as the very model of pastoral and ministerial preparation that the Church needs to Go forth!
The New Board Chair and Vice Chair
n July 2020, Rev. James Halstead, OSA, a 1976 (MDiv) and 1980 (MA) graduate of CTU and a member of the Midwest Province of the Order of St. Augustine, became chair of the CTU Board of Trustees, and Judith Chiarelli, a 1999 graduate of CTU, became vice chair. These individuals represent the partnership between the religious orders comprising the Union and lay people to proclaim the Reign of God and build the Church.
annual report 2019–2020
Fr. Halstead served 33 years on the faculty at DePaul University, retiring in 2019. An award-winning teacher and accomplished administrator, Fr. Jim was the first Director of DePaul’s Program in Catholic Studies and, for 12 years, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies. Additionally, he has taught at Loyola University Chicago, for the Archdiocese of Chicago, and in Lithuania, Greece and Japan. For the past 28 years, he has done sacramental ministry at St. Nicholas Parish in Evanston, Illinois. Fr. Jim was treasurer and prior of St. John Stone Friary, Interim Formation Director at St. Augustine Friary, and is presently provincial counselor and provincial treasurer.
Judith Chiarelli is a model of lay leadership, actively devoted to her dual vocations of science career and faith. Judy serves as the Acting Deputy Director of Argonne National Laboratory’s Strategic Security Sciences Division, providing senior leadership in the areas of Division operations, infrastructure development, and strategic planning. She also leads the Security Systems Analysis and Testing Group, an experienced team of technical experts working on a variety of national security response and recovery programs. Judy earned a Masters of Divinity from Catholic Theological Union, and served as a lay minister at St. Clement Church in Chicago for eight years. Along with her husband, Paul, she has continuously supported scholarships at CTU including the Biblical Study and Travel Program, as well as the Sr. Barbara Bowe, RSCJ Endowed Scholarship. They are members of The Way Society, naming CTU in their estate planning.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO SERVE ON THE BOARD FOR CTU?
Judy… The gospel message of community, unity, love, social justice, and the dignity of all human beings is particularly relevant for our society and the world today. This is what we need to preach and teach. The world needs authentic faith more than ever, and CTU‘s approach to ministry and theological education reflects a more authentic Church prepared to face the challenges of today.
Fr. Jim… I was drafted. I was very happy to be retired from DePaul. After being drafted I asked myself, “What did CTU do for me? What does CTU mean to me?” Then I remembered: When I came to CTU in 1972, I met Zachary Hayes, Paul Knitter, Bob Karris, Don Senior, and Caroll Stuhlmueller among many other faculty members and students. Those five people blew my world apart. I’m more philosophically oriented than Biblical, spiritual or pastoral. So, what happened was that Zachary Hayes and Paul Knitter, and Roman Vanness to a lesser extent, altered my understanding of what religion is and what Christianity is, and the richness and complexity of Catholic theological teaching—what is essential and what is secondary speculation. I learned of “cultural accretions” and what is fundamental, authentic to Christian religious experience and creedal teaching.
The Bible people, because I didn’t have much use for the Bible before CTU, made the Bible more credible to me.
HOW DID YOUR CTU EXPERIENCE INFLUENCE YOUR CAREER PATH AND FAITH LIFE?
Combine my gratitude to CTU, my sense of the Trinitarian God in the world and in my own life, my belief in the importance of education (lest ministers foist their smallness onto others) and my vocation to proclaim the Reign of God—I said to myself, “I guess I do not get to fully retire…yet.” It was the memory of and gratitude to those men (and in those days it was men)— who were incredibly challenging, inspiring, liberating and enriching—that moved me to accept election.
Judy… I’ve had a long secular career, and that combined with my lay ministry experience years ago, and my Master of Divinity degree from CTU, gives me a unique perspective. I bring what I have learned over my 40-year career to my Board position. My management and leadership experience help me identify practical solutions that can be applied to the complex problems we are facing today.
Fr. Jim… Two things. I spent 33 happy years at DePaul University. All of them were in a classroom. I also did administration. As a faculty member, Program Director and Department Chair, I learned how educators and educational systems work: the ways different professors work, how curriculum gets developed, how curriculum gets trimmed, how curriculum has to attend to contemporary situations if it’s going to be attractive, intriguing and enriching to students, how individual courses get developed and improved, and how teachers become better teachers. CTU is a professional school, not a liberal arts or a finishing school. I learned from my former colleagues in DePaul’s business, computer science, nursing and other professional schools that a professional school has to be attuned and responsive to changing job markets. Secondly, ministry as a priest. I have learned a lot. I think I know something about essential ministerial knowledge and skills, fundamental attitudes toward creation and peoples, and a couple things about personal, inner life which are vital to those who minister. One more thing: I’ve learned from my mistakes.
WITH CHANGES FACING THE WORLD AND CHURCH, WHAT DO YOU SEE AS THE ROLE OF CTU AND ITS GR ADUATES?
Judy… The mission of CTU is to prepare effective leaders for the Church. The mission hasn’t changed, but the world around us has changed and we have to adapt. Our graduates serve all over the world and their ministry is more important than ever. Our role as a Board is to ensure that the mission is served, the institution thrives, and we prepare our graduates to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
Fr. Jim… In addition to the inspiration, knowledge and intellectual freedom I mentioned, CTU, as well as my Augustinian formation, gave me the tools for ongoing growth and development. Being a religious questioner by personality, I learned that wondering about and addressing fundamental human questions in a community of questioners is a wonderful, happy and noble way to live one’s life. Did Jesus, St. Paul, St. Augustine— or even Zach Hayes!—have all the answer to life’s questions? No. But they addressed those concerns in their own time and place—which is all a human being can ever do. The same with the moral matters. Then there are pastoral skills. I believe that a minister can have all the book knowledge, but if he or she does not have the skill to lead prayer prayerfully and beautifully…and if you don’t have the skill to organize a group and ask, “All right, folks, how are we going to promote the common good? How shall we build and fund a hospital? How to run a school? How are we going to live in and do the work of the Reign of God? How shall we pray?” If you don’t have the skill to do that, well, your ministry will be severely limited. If a minister cannot sit quietly with a dying person, console a family or community who mourns, or help a person address a life issue—that minister is less-than-fully effective. If a minister cannot be comfortable with, or at least try to understand those of different races, ethnic backgrounds, or religious practices and beliefs, that minister has a growing edge. CTU gave me a start in becoming a skilled minister. How have I used my CTU theological and pastoral education? I leave that judgement to others…and to God.
annual report 2019–2020
HOW DO YOU SEE YOUR EXPERIENCE MAKING A CONTRIBUTION TO THE WORK OF THE BOARD?
My CTU experience profoundly impacted my life as a person of faith. My MDiv studies opened up the Bible, teaching, preaching, lay presiding, and so much more to me. This led to a rich understanding of ministry both within the institutional church and within my secular career. In addition, the four CTU biblical study trips I took to the Holy Land were highlights of my life that I will always cherish.
2019-20 Year in Review CELEBR ATING MILESTONE ANNIVERSARIES
Go forth! HE SAID TO THEM, “GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO ALL CREATION.” Mark 16:15
n August 2019, Catholic Theological Union opened its doors for our second half-century of providing exceptional graduate theological and ministerial education. Our atrium was once again filled with excited chatter in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese, representing just a few of the forty countries from which our dedicated students hail. CTU prepares students to Go forth! to bear witness to Christ’s good news in today’s world, a critical step in regaining the credibility of our Church. Through their ministerial work, CTU students proclaim Christ’s message louder than words. What began as an ordinary school year quickly transitioned into something quite extraordinary by midMarch. When the coronavirus pandemic hit, CTU faculty were very adept and quickly pivoted to online teaching. In fact, many of our classes had already been offered in this format. In that initial period of global uncertainty and fear, CTU seized the opportunity to do what we do best, bringing people together in thoughtful and theological discussion and fostering a community of support. Some highlights of the year follow.
In November, US Representative Jesús G. (Chuy) Garcia was honored at the Corazón de Romero fiesta. The Romero Scholars Program celebrated its 25th anniversary on el Día de los Muertos. They began the dinner-dance with the creation of an ofrenda dedicated to Saint Óscar Romero, and to those who have been part of the Romero program and who have passed away. In celebration of the 30 th anniversary of the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program, three honorees were recognized at Harambee! in March. Rev. Don Senior, CP, Dr. Opal Easter-Smith, and Bishop Joseph Perry were recognized for their long-time stewardship and commitment to the Tolton Program. The strong network and ongoing programming of the Tolton Program continue to nourish its graduates and local parishes, and it remains the only formation program of its kind in the nation. The Catholic-Muslim Studies Program celebrated its 20 th anniversary during the virtual Blessed are the Peacemakers Trustee Dinner in June. Cardinal Michael Fitzgerald, M. Afr., was honored for his lifetime of outstanding scholarship and groundbreaking pastoral leadership as the Church’s highest ranking expert in Islam and CatholicMuslim relations. A commemorative video recognized the founding and leadership of Dr. Scott Alexander, who has led the program since its inception and fostered CTU’s commitment to dialogue, reconciliation and peace. Scott has since transitioned to lead the Doctor of Ministry program at CTU, and we welcomed Syed Atif Rizwan as the new director of the Catholic-Muslim Studies Program.
Catholic Theological Union has emerged as the very model of pastoral and ministerial preparation that the Church needs to Go forth! Through spiritual formation, theological foundation and field education, CTU lay men and women study, work, and serve alongside men and women religious, each respecting and learning from one another.
Spiritual Formation CTU offers lay formation opportunities that integrate academic and personal experiences with the students’ religious traditions, while at the same time providing a support system for students who balance studies, family, work, ministry and long commutes. Through meetings with a spiritual director, retreats, and reflections, our lay students discover and respond to the presence of God in their midst, just as their fellow men and women religious peers receive similar formation through their communities. 6
FULFILLING THE LEGACY OF CARDINAL BERNARDIN
Throughout the year, CTU continued Cardinal Joseph Bernardinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ministry of reconciliation and peacemaking, interreligious dialogue, leadership development for the Catholic Church, promoting the consistent ethic of life, and the search for common ground in the church and the world. The Bernardin Center at Catholic Theological Union hosted a three-day National Young Adult Ministry Summit sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in September. The program brought together leaders from across the country to vision where the field of Catholic young adult ministry is called to go next. Many CTU alumni and faculty led plenary sessions. Through the Catholic Common Ground Initiative, the Donnelly Family-Bernardin Conference hosted a three-day gathering entitled Evangelization in the Digital Age with Pope Francis. It brought together a diverse group of Catholics to explore how evangelization and the search for common ground are carried out in the age of digital communication, and how evangelization might be transformed by newer
communication media. A keynote lecture was given by Rev. Matt Malone, SJ, editor of America Magazine. Facilitating an active spirit of dialogue and understanding remained at the forefront of Bernardin Center programming. The Catholic-Muslim Studies Program hosted a three-part lecture series on criminal justice reform which heightened awareness of injustices in the American legal system. The series highlighted three champions of social justice who have accompanied countless incarcerated and returning citizens in their struggle to maintain their dignity as valued members of the community. The Catholic-Jewish Studies Program, through the Shapiro Lecture series and the annual Rabbi Hayim Goren Perelmuter Conference, hosted scholars from the University of Chicago and Northwestern University to present Christianity Thinks with Judaism and The Holy Family? The Theology of Family Life in Medieval Judaism and Christianity.
Theological Foundation A solid theological foundation propels our students to succeed in their ministries. Students take critical, broad-based courses taught by our world-renowned faculty, grounding them in the principles of a pastoral theology attentive to the signs of the times. Our curriculum speaks meaningfully to many of the new generation who need to be convinced of the pertinence of the Church and the Gospel. Nourished by the best scholarship, CTU graduates begin their careers on a sure footing, well-equipped to understand the needs of the Church.
Field Education Field education gives our students real-world experiences that enable them to succeed in their future ministries. CTU has a strong commitment to field education and the accompanying theological reflection. The integrative work of theological studies alongside practical experience in ministry is essential to the development of skills needed to be an effective minister, especially in today’s troubled world. Field education offers interested students the opportunity to explore a ministry in a supervised setting. Every year, around forty-eight students participate in field education, primarily in Chicago, but also as distance learners in their own communities all over the country.
GATHERING TOGETHER IN COMMUNIT Y
Ten years after its initial launch, CTU announced the relaunch of its multimedia platform, Learn@CTU. With the redesigned continuing education platform, users can stream world-class lectures on handheld devices, and receive engaging blogs and podcasts weekly.
annual report 2019–2020
Expanding opportunities for student engagement and broad theological reflection, CTU offered a series of academic lectures throughout the year. This year marked the 20 th anniversary of the Louis J. Luzbetak Lecture on Mission and Culture, with Research, Practice and Training: The Challenge of Mission in an Increasingly Mobile and Complex World. Additional programs included the annual Duns Scotus Lecture, Asian Slavery in the Americas: Franciscanism, Race and Identity in the Asian American Experience; the Paul Wattson Lecture, The Ecumenical Value of Reflection on Moral Discernment; the Historical and Doctrinal Studies Lecture, Fresh Waters and the Implications of Pope Francis’ Turn to Indigenous Ecological Knowledge; and the World Mission Lecture, Encounters in Doing Theology Contextually on the US-Mexico Border.
Our Sundays at CTU series was just one of many public opportunities that facilitated engaging, insightful conversations throughout the year. We highlighted the civil rights contributions of Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, CSC, the long-time president of the University of Notre Dame. Sr. Dianne Bergant, CSA, presented the first installment of the Dr. Barry Rankin Sunday at CTU series on God’s Creation, considering our environmental responsibility as outlined in Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’. Meanwhile, an interfaith panel presentation discussed the myriad ways Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim communities are confronting the violence in Chicago. Our lecture series concluded with an engaging, online presentation, Take Me Out to the Ball Game—but Stay 6’ Away: Baseball and Theologies of Nation, Recovery and Resistance by Dr. Carmen Nanko-Fernández.
A Scholarship Breakfast in the fall brought together scholarship donors and recipients. Held in the Paul Bechtold Library, this was a wonderful opportunity for our donors to meet the recipients of their generosity, and to get know the remarkable impact their gifts have on these students’ lives. A generous grant from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) gave our faculty the opportunity to expand their annual fall Faculty Days from one to two and a half days. The expanded faculty development program was called Science and Saving Stories That Shape Us: Engaging Science and Religion in Our Curriculum and Culture. It raised awareness about expected and unexpected points of intersection between science, faith, and pastoral ministry, and provided some initial strategies to help faculty members begin exploring science-related topics with students in their classes. Faculty members had the opportunity to engage with scientific experts on-site and off-site, and learn from theologians who have successfully incorporated scientific insights, analogies, and strategies into their own research and pedagogy. The annual Alumni Retreat was virtual this year, with Sr. Christa Parra, IBVM, presenting God’s Presence Within Us: Reflections from the US-Mexico Border, and Rev. Robin Ryan, CP, celebrating an alumni liturgy. The online format significantly increased participation, allowing alumni from all over the US to participate.

Campaign Update $16 M I L L I O N C A M PA I G N I M PAC T
atholic Theological Union’s Forward in Faith campaign has always been about access. Student access to scholarships, faculty access to professional development, and access provided by the innovative use of technology. The interrelated campaign priorities are even more relevant today than four years ago. The campaign was launched on the occasion of CTU’s 50th anniversary, reimagining what the best of theological education can offer men and women, religious and lay, preparing for the world of the twenty-first century, while building on a half century of success. Now in its fourth year, the ambitious Forward in Faith campaign is already achieving success and making an impact, even as we are engulfed in a global pandemic, conflicts over racial injustice, and deep divisions in our society. The need for thoughtful, committed, and well-prepared ministers of the Gospel has never been more urgent.
annual report 2019–2020
Despite this challenging climate, and with the campaign’s 2022 target end date in sight, momentum continues to move us Forward in Faith. In June 2020, thanks to your generosity, cumulative Campaign giving surpassed $13.9 million, or 87% to the goal of $16 million. These much-needed funds came from the religious orders who sponsor CTU, as well as the many devoted individual lay friends and donors who partner with us in this crucial enterprise.
With that encouraging support has come a burst of energy and a surge of creativity in every corner of our institution as we strive to meet the needs of the global Church. The availability of expanded scholarship capacity enables us to recruit and sustain excellent students from across the country and worldwide. New educational programs have been launched while others have been enhanced and expanded. Faculty have new resources to engage in both traditional and cutting-edge theology and methods of evangelization in forming future ministers. Here are a few specific examples of the kind of support that is making a difference for CTU, enabling us to continue to prepare the seminarians of our twenty-four member communities, as well as expand our outreach to talented lay men and women eager to serve the Church and our world.
innovation and technology
Ladies of Bethany This named scholarship, funded by the international religious community of the Ladies of Bethany, is intended for women who understand the problems and opportunities presented in today’s socially, politically, economically, culturally and religiously diverse societies. The scholarship helps women— either lay women or vowed religious—who might otherwise not have the financial means to pursue theological education. Successful applicants will demonstrate the following spiritual and ministerial commitments: “creating an open heart to the reality of God”, developing the spiritual dimension, having attention to ecumenism, relating interculturally, and enriching each other spiritually from the richness of each culture and all religious traditions.
Mary Rose Shaughnessy Endowed Scholarship Fund The family of CTU friend and alumna, Mary Rose Shaughnessy, established this scholarship fund in her memory, to provide lay women and men the funds they require for ministerial training. These lay ministers, who are taking on increasing responsibilities in the Church, will speak to and effectively address the world’s needs for reconciliation, peacemaking, and transcending boundaries. Barry and Winnifred F. Sullivan Faculty Research Support Endowment Established by CTU Life Trustee and distinguished university professors Barry and Winni Sullivan, this endowment supports annual grants to faculty for ongoing research and writing projects. The Sullivans recognized the need to continually resource and invest in CTU faculty, our most valuable asset. Franciscan Friars, St. John the Baptist Province Faculty Excellence Endowment One of the CTU Corporate members, the Franciscan Friars of the St. John the Baptist Province, endowed this fund to support the annual professional development funds for every qualified faculty member. Professional development, including membership fees in professional organizations, attendance at professional conferences and gatherings, is the life-blood sustaining faculty research and writing. Next Generation Challenge — Achieved! Ennobled by her concern for the alarming number of young people drifting away from the Church, a dear friend of CTU offered us this bold challenge: for every dollar we raise devoted to welcoming young people into the Catholic Church, she will match it with a dollar of her own, up to $400,000. We are thrilled to announce that we have met and exceeded this challenge in February 2020. Reaching out to young adult Catholics is a major commitment of CTU for the future.
Campaign Leadership Catholic Theological Union is grateful for the leadership of the individuals who have contributed time, talent, and exceptional generosity in support of the institution and the historic success of the Forward in Faith campaign.

These are but a few examples of how your generosity has made a genuine impact. They touch every area of the institution and sustain the work of faculty and students. The Campaign is an effort to build an even greater CTU for tomorrow, and we are deeply grateful that alumni, friends, and corporation members continue to advance this goal.
ON TO THE FIN ISH!
ooking ahead, we are excited to be part of such a historic effort as we gear up for the final year of Forward in Faith. We are confident that this wonderful community will rise to the challenge to meet and surpass our $16 million goal.

THE WAY SOCIET Y
A Challenge for CTU’s Future: Join The Way Society The first followers of Jesus called themselves the “people of the Way” because they were setting out on a courageous journey of faith that would bring the Gospel to the world. In that same spirit, CTU is helping build the future of the Church today. We ask you to take this journey with us in this critical time. We intend to build membership in The Way Society, our community of donors who have named CTU in their wills or other estate plans. Your estate gift will provide the critical support that CTU needs to do God’s work, to proclaim the gospel of peace and justice in a credible way. We ask you to partner with us in preparing a new generation of women and men, committed to renewing the life of the Church of the 21st century. If you have already included CTU in your estate plan, please let us know so we can recognize your legacy of generosity. If you would like to join The Way Society with this very personal level of support, please visit ctu.edu/plannedgiving and contact: Colleen Kennedy Vice President of Institutional Advancement 773.371.5417 firstname.lastname@example.org
BE WITH US on this journey.
