Honoring Fr. Paul Schindler

Christians for Peace in El Salvador (CRISPAZ) will honor Fr. Paul Schindler, with the CRISPAZ Peace Award on October 17, 2017. Fr. Paul will be receiving the award at an evening reception to be held at John Carroll University, University Heights, OH. The CRISPAZ Peace Award honors a particular individual or organization each year who has demonstrated a significant commitment to the promotion of peace and social justice. CRISPAZ, the awarding organization, has for more than three decades enabled thousands of individuals, mainly from North America, to accompany the Salvadoran People in their ongoing struggle for peace rooted in justice and compassion.

 



About Fr. Paul Schindler

Smiley faceRev. Paul Schindler was ordained in 1967 and served as an associate pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Wadsworth, OH before being assigned to the diocesan mission in El Salvador in 1972, serving Salvadoran people in urban, remote, and impoverished regions.

 

The decade Rev. Paul Schindler served in El Salvador defined his priesthood. The team ministered to 140,000 people in 40 parishes. His team worked directly with people living in marginalized communities, setting up education programs, enrolling students in school, teaching catechism and bible lessons, forming parish councils and training volunteers.

 

While in El Salvador, Fr. Schindler witnesses the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Romero and was involved in the discovery of the bodies of three American nuns and a lay missionary who had been gunned down by the Salvadoran National Guard in 1980. He also watched scores of friends and acquaintances die from shootings, disease and starvation.

 

In 1982 he returned to serve as Pastor of St. Bernard, Akron OH, where according to one of his parishioners Lisa Smith, Fr. Schindler delivered a consistent message where he “encourages people to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick and those in prison, treat people equally and serve others.” He is “someone who cares about social justice for everyone.”

 

After 25 years at St. Bernard, Fr. Schindler felt the call to return and serve the people of El Salvador and requested to be reassigned to pastor the Immaculate Conception parish in La Libertad in 2007 where he continues to serve today.

 

Fr. Schindler said that if he dies in El Salvador, he plans to be buried in the same manner as slain Archbishop Romero and other Salvadoran priests -- in the floor of a parish church. Fr. Schindler frequently “skypes” from El Salvador with his brother in Independence, OH, has traveled the world visiting other missionaries, keeps up on baseball scores and loves pupusas.
