A Funeral Mass was held Friday, Nov. 2, for the Rev. Carl Schulte, C.M., who died Oct. 29, 2012, at the age of 92.
Rev. Carl Schulte was born Oct. 26, 1920, in East Moline, to William and Pauline Neels Schulte. He attended St. Anne's Grade School and graduated from East Moline High School in 1938. In 1940, he joined the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentian fathers) at Perryville, Mo. He was ordained to the priesthood on May 30, 1948, and celebrated his first Solemn High Mass on June 6, at St. Anne's Church, East Moline.
His 64 years of priestly service included mission work in China as well as formation of the Catholic clergy in seminaries in Texas, Illinois and Missouri.
