Otto A. Shults Lecture Series

The Otto A. Schults Lecture Series on Spirituality was born of the dream of Mr. Otto A. Shults, a faithful and generous advocate of St. Bernard’s Seminary, predecessor of St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry.

Following her husband’s death, Mabel Shults vowed to continue the family’s commitment to theological and ministerial education by endowing this Lecture Series, now in its 45th year.

Each year since 1974, the Lectureship has brought distinguished scholars to St. Bernard’s to address spiritual theology as it relates to the understanding and practice of ministry in the contemporary Church.
