Fall 2013
A Message from President Ronald L. May
Greetings from Ancilla College! Let
me begin by thanking each of you for
your continued support of Ancilla
and the students who attend. Without
your very generous support it would
be nearly impossible to sustain the
efforts made by our faculty and staff
to transform the lives of our students.
Foundation, Northern Indiana Community Foundation,
Community Foundation of St. Joseph County and the Kosciusko
County Community Foundation. We are grateful that individuals,
corporations and foundations have set aside such funds to benefit
Ancilla and its students.
The average scholarship or grant made to Ancilla students totals
$3,000 per year. At the endowment pay out rate currently used by
the Board of Trustees, such a grant requires $75,000 in endowment.
That is not an insignificant amount of money for most of us.
During the current budget year we
have allocated $1.2 million to support Nonetheless, if we are to continue to provide the support needed
to serve the students we are called to serve, that is the kind of

number we have to keep in mind.

Some funds within the endowment are set aside for programmatic

endowment, area community foundations also hold funds that
generate income to support Ancilla scholarships and programs.
Such funds are currently held by the Marshall County Community

Sr. Dr. Judith Diltz is now the Provincial of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. We are sad to see Sr. Judith
leave after many years of service to Ancilla as an associate professor, but know that she will provide excellent
leadership to the ministries of The Center at Donaldson.
Welcome Week
Ancilla hosted a fall Welcome Week for students, faculty, and
staff. The event took place September 10-12 at the college.
More than 400 students, faculty, and staff enjoyed games, free
food, and prize drawings. Information tables about student
activities, local vendors, and more were available for attendees to peruse.
“We’re really excited about the new school year. We had a
great turnout and students were able to connect again, or
for the first time, after the summer break,” said Eric Wignall,
Executive Director of Admissions.

Sister Cathy
PHJC, was the
featured presenter for the Ancilla College Lampen
Lecture series Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013
Sr. Cathy has been a student of iconography for 15
years and received her master’s degree in pastoral
studies. She met with students, faculty, staff, and
members of the PHJC community to discuss icons,
which are religious images famous in the Orthodox
and Eastern churches. The following question
was posed, “Why do we call the symbols on our
computer screen icons when religious images
honored by the Orthodox Church for centuries were
called icons?”
“Sister Cathy told us that icons point beyond
ourselves. Computer icons point to functions;
religious icons point to religious stories. Religious
icons came into being to tell religious stories
during the time when many people could not
read or write,” explained Sister Carleen Wrasman,
Coordinator of Mission Integration at Ancilla
The Lampen Lecture Series was designed to
combine the universality of the Catholic Church,
the international character of the Poor Handmaids
of Jesus Christ, who sponsor Ancilla College, and
the Earth Charter to promote thinking beyond one’s
own experiences and interests.

Making Connections
ou step on a plane to fly more than 2000 miles from home to a country where you don’t speak the
language. You land at the airport in Querétaro at 10 p.m., where two PHJC Sisters drive you more
than an hour to a remote village. Sound crazy? Maybe to you or me, but not to Ancilla alumna Sarah
Cawthon 12’.
Sarah is part of IU-Bloomington’s individualized major program. She has created her own multidisciplinary major
focusing on journalism and latino studies. What better way for a Latino studies major to spend her summer than
volunteering for 18 days in Querétaro, Mexico? Sarah couldn’t think of any, “I was there to absorb the Mexican
culture, learn Spanish and document my experience through photography. My trip was a chance to volunteer and
gain a better understanding for my Latino studies major.”
Sarah combined her connection
and love of Ancilla College with
her passion at IU. She linked
up with PHJC sisters, including
Sr. Mary Jane, to travel to San
Ildefonso, Mexico. San Ildefonso
is a small village of Otomi, an
indigenous people to Central
Mexico, about 12 miles outside the
town of Amealco. And she was not
alone. Sarah volunteered alongside
three other Americans and 12
university students from Mexico.
Her American counterparts
included a married couple from
Texas and a man from Alaska. Sr.
Mary Jane divided the volunteers
into pairs, and each pair worked
with a certain grade level in the
local summer camp.

of Ancilla College ’12, stands at the base of a waterfall in
Querétaro, Mexico, after hiking with fellow volunteers.

Sarah and her partner were
assigned to work with the
kindergarten-aged children at the
summer camp. She hoped to make
the two weeks fun for the children
and so as a Phi Theta Kappa
alumna, Sarah brought four soccer
balls donated by PTK to give to
the children of San Ildefonso. She also hoped to expand her Spanish vocabulary while she was there, but what she
experienced went beyond any vocab lesson.
“When I first began working with the kindergarteners, I was very nervous and most of the children were skeptical
of me. For many, I was the first person they had ever encountered who did not speak Spanish,” said Sarah. It
could also have been her blond hair and blue eyes that gave the children a heads up. However, reading Yorgua la
Tortuga (Yertle the Turtle), a Dr. Seuss book, to 3-year-old Diego was all it took to break the ice. He soon sought
Sarah out as a soccer buddy during recess. Sarah encouraged 5-year old Rogelio to play during recess as well.
She explained, “Otomi parents do not often play with their children, so most grow up not knowing how to play. I
would see Rogelio sitting on the sidewalk instead of playing soccer with his classmates. So I grabbed one of the
soccer balls Phi Theta Kappa had donated and kicked the ball towards Rogelio. Not wanting to be rude, Rogelio
would politely kick the ball back to me and sit back down. After a few times of kicking the ball, Rogelio started to
smile and continued to stand as he waited for the ball to be passed his way again.”
The soccer balls were such a hit that Sarah gave one to each of the four boys she worked with: Diego, Rogelio,
Eluney, and David. Rogelio was particularly grateful, approaching Sarah in town after camp had ended to give her
a huge hug with a smile on his face. It was
moments like these that made Sarah’s trip.
Sarah returned home and is now back at IU
continuing her studies.
Fall 2013 :: 5
Ancilla and Rome
It was an honor for me to participate as a member of the 2013 Association of Catholic Colleges
& Universities (ACCU) Rome Seminar. I was asked to participate in February 2013 and after
discussions with the leadership of the Ancilla College Board of Trustees I agreed to do so. The
Rome Seminar has been an official activity of ACCU for the past nine years. Its purpose is to foster
ongoing dialogue between leaders from American Catholic colleges and universities and various
Congregations and Pontifical Councils in the Vatican. Greater understanding and cooperation
between the Vatican and U.S. Catholic higher education institutions is among the desired outcomes.
Our delegation met with Vatican representatives from the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian
Unity, the Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life & Societies of Apostolic Life, the
Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, the Congregation for Catholic Education, the Congregation
for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Pontifical Council for Culture, the Pontifical Council for
Interreligious Dialogue, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments
and the Prefect of the Vatican Library. In addition, we met with the British & Canadian Ambassadors
to the Holy See, as well as representatives of the Jesuit Curia, and several Catholic colleges and
universities in Rome. It was a busy schedule of discussions and dialogue spread over four days.
Our delegation and spouses also had an audience with Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square. We
celebrated Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica in a small chapel across from the sepulcher of St. Peter. We
were able, during an afternoon of free time, to visit the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel.
The discussions with various Vatican officials and other members of the delegation helped me gain a
more global understanding of how little Ancilla College, in rural northern Indiana, contributes to the
overall mission of Catholic higher education. Catholic colleges, universities and schools are literally
in every part of the world. The discussions helped reinforce my commitment to serving students at
Ancilla College who come from underserved
populations. The role we play in transforming
the lives of those students truly does help
change the world.
Subsequent to our time in Rome, my wife,
Joan, and I began a leisurely move toward a
meeting in Dernbach with General Leadership
of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. It took
us a few days to get there, but we made it and
we were warmly greeted by Sr. Jolise and Sr.
Christiana. We also met over meals with other
members of General Leadership over the
course of a two day visit. We learned much
about the history of the Poor Handmaids from
their origins to the present day. We were able
to see firsthand how a small group of women
religious, in a small village in Germany could
eventually grow to serve countless people on
multiple continents in healthcare, education, eldercare, social services and many other ways. The
experience in Dernbach helped me connect what we are trying to do at Ancilla College each day
to strengthen that mission. I was reinforced in my efforts to respect and value each person served
by Ancilla. I was challenged to stand with the poor and powerless in the search for justice. I was
reminded, once again, to use the talents and gifts with which I have been blessed to serve others.
Let me close by again saying the visits to Rome and Dernbach were impactful. Each part of the visits
gave me new insights into the importance of what we do here in Donaldson.

Giving opportunities at Ancilla College
There are a number of ways for you to provide financial support to Ancilla College, Indiana’s only private two-year, Catholic
college sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ and part of The Center at Donaldson. With the College providing
more than $1 million in need based grants and scholarships each year to its students, the need for gifts from generous
donors is great. Please review the various categories below and consider how you might like to get involved as we work
together to help change lives:
Ancilla Fund- Gifts to the Ancilla Fund enable the college to provide much needed financial aid in the form of
scholarships and tuition assistance for the students who enroll at Ancilla. Ancilla Fund income is an important component
of each year’s operating budget allowing the college to not only provide financial aid, but also technology and classroom
upgrades, professional development, and student support services.
Endowment- A critical long-term funding priority for the College is the establishment of an endowment fund program
that will enable the College to operate with a degree of financial security for the future. As of June 30, 2013, the total market
value of the existing 15 endowed funds is slightly more than $4 million. In order for the College to continue its current
practice of providing $1.2 million in need-based financial aid on an annual basis to its students, the endowed funds total
needs to get to $30 million. A minimum of $25,000 is required to establish a named scholarship fund. Gifts can also be made
to any of the 15 existing funds. To view a listing of the existing funds, please go to: In addition, gifts can be made to Ancilla-related endowment funds
held at area Community Foundations in Kosciusko, Marshall, Starke and St. Joseph counties.
Programmatic- Needs exist for each of the 18 degree programs currently offered at Ancilla. From endowed chairs and
professorships to technology and resource enhancements, your investment in a specific academic program will provide the
financial backing it needs to stay competitive in today’s ever-changing workplace environment. To check out the current
offering of degree programs, go to:
Athletics- The College offers students an opportunity to continue their athletic careers by providing a number of team
sport options. As members of the National Junior College Athletic Association and the Michigan Community College
Athletic Association, women’s basketball, softball and volleyball and men’s basketball, baseball, soccer, and golf are all
available at Ancilla. Cheerleading is also offered as a club sport for both men and women. Your gifts of support will help to
provide athletic scholarships, facility upkeep and improvements, uniforms, equipment, and travel support. In addition, field
and facility naming opportunities are available. The goal for an athletic endowment fund is $6 million in order to provide
the current level of athletic scholarships totaling $240,000 per year.
Residential and Student Life Facilities- In order for Ancilla to increase its student enrollment, residential
and student life facilities are needed. If student housing was available today, the admissions staff could be recruiting
students from Catholic and other high schools from points outside the current 40 to 50 mile radius. As we evaluate a
variety of proposals for residential and student life facilities, we would be able to keep our student room and board fees at
reasonable and competitive rates if we could raise the approximately $5 million for a student commons building, as opposed
to borrowing that money. Naming opportunities for the residential and student life facilities are available.
All of us here at Ancilla College hope we can count on your financial support in one or more of the areas described above.
In addition to gifts of cash or stock, planned gifts, no matter the size, have the power to impact Ancilla for generations to
come. To request a planned giving brochure, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement by phone at
1-866-ANCILLA or by e-mail at [email protected] Thank you for your consideration of a gift to help our students
realize their dream of a college education and for helping to change lives.

going back to school seem too difficult. News of tuition increases at
regional universities can make it seem too expensive. For some it may
be the thought of going back to school after years away from classrooms
and homework. But Ancilla College is trying to make it easier for adult
learners to come and try out college – for free.
Ancilla is offering a free college course to first-time students as part of
the “We Believe in You” program. “We Believe in You” allows any adult,
21-years and older, who has not yet earned any college credits, to take a
class with up to three credit hours at no cost (free tuition and fees).
In addition, all students in the program will have an academic advisor
to assist them with every aspect of attending college for the first time,
including help with the registration process, completing a financial aid
application, choosing education opportunities, and more.
Spring classes begin Jan. 6, 2014 at Ancilla’s campus near Plymouth. “We
Believe in You” was created in 1988 by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus
Christ, the religious order that sponsors Ancilla College. “Over 50 people
have taken part in this program,” said Ancilla Admissions Director Eric
“Many of them have gone on to take more classes and several have
completed college degrees. They started with one course to test the waters
and took advantage of the opportunity to restart their education. Adult
students can use the ‘We Believe in You’ grant on top of other financial aid
from federal and state programs to launch a college degree,” Wignall said.
“Taking a college course in writing or computer technology can jump-start
a college degree at any age. Faced with a difficult jobs outlook today I
expect to see more students across Northern Indiana to take that first step
in college and receive up to three credits of coursework for free,” Wignall
For more information on “We Believe in You,” please contact the Ancilla
College Admissions Office at (574) 936-8898.
