Our Missionaries currently serve at three colleges – Saint Joseph’s College, Calumet College of St. Joseph, and Catholic Theological Union.
Saint Joseph’s College
Saint Joseph's College was founded in 1888 when Bishop Joseph Dwenger, a C.PP.S. missionary, encouraged his congregation to take on a college mission in a then-remote area in northwestern Indiana. Today, Saint Joseph’s College educates over 1,000 undergraduates both academically and spiritually.
Students at Saint Joseph's College complete an innovative Core curriculum steeped in theology, philosophy and ethics that places students at home in the culture of Christ.
Saint Joseph’s also fulfills a unique role in the Diocese of Lafayette, Ind., as it offers training for ecclesial lay ministers.
Calumet College of St. Joseph
From its humble beginnings in a storefront in East Chicago, Ind., Calumet College of St. Joseph, now shared by the cities of Hammond and Whiting, Ind., is a small college known for its ethnically diverse student population. In fact, it is recognized as one of the most ethnically diverse small colleges in the United States.
With a current enrollment of 1,340, it serves many traditional and nontraditional students in its urban neighborhood, offering an education to single parents, blue-collar workers and others who hope to broaden their opportunities, but might not otherwise be able to afford the dream of a college education.
Catholic Theological Union
Catholic Theological Union (CTU) in Chicago is the largest theological school in the United States. Priest and brother candidates in advanced formation with the Missionaries attend classes at CTU. Our Missionaries are currently on the CTU faculty, including Father Robert J. Schreiter, C.PP.S., and Brother Antonio Sison, C.PP.S.
