The Precious Blood Spirituality Institute (PBSI) is pleased to announce the hiring of the first director of the Schreiter Institute at Catholic Theological Union, Dr. Kevin Considine, Ph.D.

Dr. Considine began his work in July. He returns to Catholic Theological Union (CTU) as an alumnus and adjunct assistant professor of systematic theology.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be the inaugural Director of the Schreiter Institute,” Considine said. “I knew Fr. Bob Schreiter for more than 15 years, was mentored by him, and look forward to the challenge of integrating the Precious Blood spirituality of reconciliation and peacemaking into the curriculum and lifeblood of CTU.”

He has served in education throughout his career. He holds an MA in theology from CTU and a Ph.D from Loyola University. He has taught at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including at Calumet College of St. Joseph in Whiting, Ind. He is the author of several books and numerous journal articles, book reviews and academic papers.

PBSI is a partnership of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, the Adorers of the Blood of Christ and the Sisters of the Precious Blood of Dayton. Its mission is to promote Precious Blood spirituality to the world.

The Schreiter Institute was created to collaborate with CTU to offer courses, workshops and support academic research that will advance this spirituality.

Sr. Barbara Reid, O.P., CTU president, commented, “We are thrilled to partner with three Precious Blood communities to establish a new institute at CTU that promotes their charism of justice, reconciliation and peacebuilding.”
