Invest in the future leaders of the Church

What to support


Don Senior, CP


Rev. Donald Senior, CP Memorial Fund

Here at CTU, the months since Fr. Don’s death have been challenging yet inspiring. Publishers have worked to prepare and release Don’s final book, What Does the Bible Say About Inclusion? Sr. Barbara Reid is leading a retreat at the Passionist retreat house as Don did each year and carrying the torch for the Lands of the Bible travel program. And of course, Fr. Don’s decades of Biblical scholarship live on in the work of CTU faculty and students, informing, instructing and illuminating what he called “the lodestar,” Christian scripture.


Another way we are honoring Fr. Don’s life is by establishing the Donald Senior, CP Memorial Fund. This new fund supports initiatives that, as determined by CTU’s President, will sustain institutional vitality and self-renewal, carrying on the spirit of Don’s vision for advancing CTU, the institution to which he dedicated his life’s work.


CTU has received several significant multi-year commitments to the Donald Senior Memorial Fund, and we invite you to join in with your own contribution. Gifts to this fund give CTU the flexibility and resources needed to reinforce specific areas that will help fulfill our mission and our vision for the future. Please consider a meaningful pledge, gift or perhaps honor Don’s memory through your own planned giving/bequest.


While there will never be another scholar, teacher and “dear friend” like Don Senior, we will rest easier knowing that we’ve secured the legacy of Fr. Don’s leadership of CTU well into the future through the Donald Senior Memorial Fund.

CTU provides scholarships to qualified lay women and men who are seeking master’s level degrees in theology and ministry and are committed to serving in a variety of ministries. The goal is to make theological education and formation accessible to those who demonstrate a capacity to serve the Gospel.
