Dear Friends, 

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.
