Bishop Scheinder's Eastern U.S. Tour Schedule

The Emperor Karl League of Prayer, U.S.A and Canada, is pleased to announce the Eastern U.S. Tour of Bishop Athanasius Schneider, O.R.C. Organized by the League, Bishop Schneider will celebrate Masses for Blessed Karl and deliver talks that focus on the importance of devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the current times, and the social reign of Christ the King.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider, O.R.C.,  serves as the auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Astana. Born Anton Schneider in Tokmok, Kirghiz SSR in the Soviet Union, his parents were ethnic Germans from the Ukraine who were sent by Stalin to gulags in the Ural Mountains after the Second World War. They traveled to the Kirghiz SSR after being released from the camps. In 1973, shortly after making his first Holy Communion by the hand of Bl. Oleksa Zaryckyj, priest and martyr, he left with his family for Germany. When he joined the Canons Regular of the Holy Cross of Coimbra he was given the religious name Athanasius. He was ordained a priest on March 25, 1990. Beginning in 1999, he taught Patristics at Mary, Mother of the Church Seminary in Karaganda. In 2009 he authored, Dominus Est — It is the Lord: Reflections from a Bishop in Central Asia on Holy Communion (Newman House Press), which discusses ways of receiving the Eucharist with reverence. On June 2, 2006, he was consecrated a bishop at the Altar of the Chair of Saint Peter in Saint Peter's Basilica, Rome, by Angelo Cardinal Sodano. In 2011 he was named auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Astana.
