Robert Schwendau Receives Letters of Affiliation
On May 15th, Robert Schwendau was affiliated to the Institute during a private ceremony at the Benilde/De La Salle Community in Chicago. Brother Larry Schatz presented the Letters of Affiliation on behalf of Brother Robert Schieler, Superior General. Bob’s association with the Christian Brothers dates back to 1951 when he left St. George High School as a sophomore to join the Glencoe juniorate and then the novitiate, and the scholasticate at Saint Mary’s College where he graduated in 1958. While he was a Brother, he taught and counseled students at various schools sponsored by the Brothers in the legacy Saint Louis District and served as secretary to the Visitor. In 2003, Bob was invited to become a resident Partner in the De La Salle Community of Chicago and has been an active community member since that time.
