Univ. Chaplain to Leave CUA

April 8, 2010

University President Rev. David M. O’Connell announced that University Chaplian and director of campus ministry Rev. Robert F. Schlageter, will be leaving the University this summer to take a new assignment for his religious community.

The exact location and timing of his move will be announced following the Conventual Franciscans’ chapter meeting later this spring.

Father O’Connell met with the provincial superior of the Conventual Franciscans to determine Father Bob’s successor and to establish a renewable, four-year contract for continuity of service by three Conventual Franciscan friars in campus ministry.

A third Conventual Franciscan friar will join the new university chaplain and Rev. Andrew Santamauro, also a member of the religious community and current associate chaplain for faith development, before the fall 2010 semester. A fourth Conventual Franciscan, Brother Leonard Katusz, also works at CUA in the university libraries.

“It has been such a privilege for me to serve at Catholic for these last 12 years,” observed Father Bob. “Every moment has been a gift. I will always treasure my time here. I have received so much more than I could ever have given.”

“I leave Catholic University with very mixed emotions,” said Father Bob. “I am thankful for the privilege of being a part of so many lives. I want to thank Father O’Connell for his support and vision over these last 12 years. His support has meant so much to me and the spiritual life here at Catholic.
