Ideally there should be a companion volume to this history of Catholic Theological Union. It would be entitled “Apostles and Martyrs,” and it would tell the story of the graduates of CTU and their work in ministry. Interesting as the account of the origins and developing programs of the school might be, the ultimate commentary on CTU is the living document, the men and women who have prepared for ministry at CTU and are now serving in the field.

-Rev. Paul Bechtold, CP, Catholic Theological Union at Chicago, The Founding Years

Nominations for 50 at 50

On the occasion of Catholic Theological Union’s 50th Anniversary, it is a wonderful moment to reflect on and recognize the incredible contributions that have been made and continue to be made by those who have graduated from CTU.


Highlighting the work that our alumni do is a vital part of telling the CTU story, and we want to ensure we learn the stories of CTU alumni from all corners of the globe.


Thank you for your submissions to the 50 Inspiring Alumni Stories. Our nomination period has closed. We will publish the first 25 stories in the Winter Logos and on our Alumni Access Webpage.
