Benefactors to Catholic Theological Union are partners in our service to the Church and world. We invite you to join us as partners in mission.
As the largest Roman Catholic graduate school of theology and ministry in North America, your investment will have a lasting impact as we train the future leaders of our international faith community—persons who serve as priests, pastoral associates, hospital and prison chaplains, lay ecclesial ministers, catechists, and more—in the United States and across the globe.
Catholic Theological Union comprises a community of faithful lifelong learners whose interests and areas of expertise are wide-ranging. Throughout the year, CTU hosts a variety of events that we hope engage and nourish all who attend.

It was a beautiful Autumn day in Chicago's Hyde Park as more than 400 guests filled the KAM Isaiah Israel Congregation to celebrate the inauguration of CTU's seventh President, Rev. Mark R. Francis, CSV.
The celebration opened with the fanfare La Mourisque (Tylman Susato) played by the Millar Brass Ensemble. Academic and ecclesial guests, CTU faculty, CTU's Board of Trustees and Corporate Members, and the platform party then processed in to Jubilate Deo performed by the William Ferris Chorale and the Millar Brass Ensemble.
Please join the CTU community for our Season of Welcome events as we celebrate the inauguration of our seventh president, Mark R. Francis, CSV, and open a new chapter in CTU’s history of preparing women and men for leadership in the Church and beyond. All events held at CTU’s Academic and Conference Center, 5416 S. Cornell Ave., unless otherwise noted.
