The CTSA mourns long-standing member Robert Schreiter, C.PP.S.
CTSA President 1998 - 1999
May Bob rest in peace.
Antonio D. Sison, C.PP.S.'s video on Bob titled:
"Robert Schreiter: His Life in 10.5 Minutes"
I made this vid for Bob on the occasion of his 65th birthday celebration on January 4, 2013. Created at short notice "guerilla" style using analog tech and a very early version of the freeware iMovie. It turned out to be an intimate portrait, with precious material from his earlier life. I recorded Bob on audio as he told his own narrative. Precious. I would often rib him about how a farm boy from Nowhereland turned out to be such a brilliant mind and a polyglot, he would laugh when I told him my theory: he was implanted by an advanced alien civilization. Join me in this meaningful recollection.

Text from Sr. Barbara Reid, O.P., President, Catholic Theological Union, to the CTU Community follows:
June 2, 2021
To the CTU Community:
The CTU Community grieves profoundly the loss of our long-time colleague and world-renowned
scholar, Robert Schreiter, C.PP.S. Bob joined the CTU faculty in 1974 and his outstanding contributions
are too numerous to list. His work on Reconciliation, in particular, was unparalleled, both in his
international accompaniment of Church leaders in peacebuilding and in teaching standing-room-only
crowds of students every year.
Bob served as Vice President and Academic Dean for nine years and was instrumental in founding CTU’s
D.Min. Program. His vision and wisdom also shaped the Bernardin Center, as its founding Director.
These are only a fraction of his unparalleled contributions to CTU.
As we mourn this great loss, we pray that Bob now be enjoying the fullness of God’s love for all eternity.
