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. He worked for the funding of the Vincentian mission in Taiwan and Chile before organizing a parish mission program in 1974. In 1981, he was appointed as director of the Daughters of Charity for the nine-state Evansville, Ind., province. He was assigned to the Vincentian Parish Mission Center in Independence, Mo., in 1993.
During his retirement, Rev. Schulte wrote "The Life of Sister Marie de Mandat-Grancey and Mary's House in Ephesus." Sister Marie is being considered for the Cause for Beatification. The book is in its second printing.
Rev. Schulte is survived by his sister, Corine Schulte, Silvis, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Walter and Bill; and sister, Alice Granet.

1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
