Patronal Feast of Christ the King

From the President Dear Friends: In the midst of so many difficulties besetting our beloved nation, the Church and the world, I would like to begin by thanking all of you, our faithful supporters, for all the prayers you have offered on behalf of the work of Christendom College, and especially your continued financial support. I ask you to please continue to do all you can to support the work of the College, through your prayer, by spreading the good word about Christendom College, and through the financial sacrifices so many of you make to ensure that this gem in the crown of higher Catholic education will continue to grow and thrive. It’s hard to believe that when I first came to Christendom College back in 1985, there were only 120 students enrolled. It is truly a joy to see all the development that has taken place since that time, especially after our 30th anniversary celebration, which led us to our current record enrollment of over 420 students. Together we have accomplished great things. In the midst of so many challenges, it is important we continue to reflect on our blessings and the great gifts and consolations that come to us through our Catholic Faith. Our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, has asked all of us to raise our hearts and minds this year to reflect on the great apostle to the Gentiles, St. Paul. In declaring this year to be especially dedicated to St. Paul, Pope Benedict, in his general audience of July 2, 2008, spoke explicitly of what he hoped would be the fruits of this year: “And this is the goal of the Pauline year: to learn from St. Paul, to learn faith, to learn Christ, and finally to learn the way of upright living.” Pope Benedict chose the year of 2008 as the year to recall Paul’s birth in 8 AD. Although raised as a zealous Pharisee and educated in Jerusalem under Gamaliel, in approximately 35 AD, while traveling bearing letters from the high priest for the persecution of Christians, Paul encountered the Risen Lord on the road to Damascus. This overwhelming experience transformed him, and Saul the Persecutor rose as Paul the Apostle. One cannot underestimate the power of this great encounter with the Risen Lord. Pope Benedict expresses the hope that we would all learn the faith from St. Paul – faith in Jesus Christ was the dominant passion in Paul’s life. He embraced it not only in his personal life, but in his zeal, longed with the most ardent passion to spread that faith to the entire world. Looking at the extent of his missionary journeys, throughout the Middle East to Asia Minor, Greece, and even as far as Rome and distant Spain, we cannot but be in awe at the depth of Paul’s faith. Along with learning about the faith, Pope Benedict also expressed the hope that we would learn Christ from St. Paul. He was a man seized by Jesus Christ. As St. John Chrysostom once wrote, “The heart of Paul is truly the Heart of Christ.” In Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians, his intense love for Christ is manifested in his “boasting.” He speaks of the extent to which he has been willing to suffer for the gift of faith in Christ Jesus.


Timothy T. O’Donnell, STD, KGCHS

“Are they offspring of Abraham? So am I. Are they ministers of Christ? I – to speak as a fool – am more: in many more labors, in prisons more frequently, in lashes above measure, often exposed to death. From the Jews five times I received forty lashes less one. Thrice I was scourged, once I was stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and day I was adrift on the sea; in journeyings often, in perils from floods, in perils from robbers, in perils from my own nation, in perils from the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils from false brethren; in labor and hardships, in many sleepless nights, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Besides those outer things, there is my daily pressing anxiety, the care of all the churches! Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I am not inflamed?” 2 Corinthians 11:22 – 30 Only a man totally in love with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ could have possibly endured so much on His behalf. There is certainly much we can learn about the faith and about Jesus Christ from St. Paul, and also much we can learn, as Pope Benedict expressed, in terms of “the way of upright living.” Today, when hostile secularization continues to drive religious faith underground, and a reemerging paganism seeks to suffocate the gift which faith in Christ brings to life, a reading of St. Paul can bring us back to our senses. The pagan world of Greece and Rome was deeply aware of its own sinfulness and recognized the need of a divine liberator. The Hebrew people themselves were falling under the weight of the law, which convicted them of sin but did not provide the channels of grace necessary to overcome that sin. St. Paul reminds us that when the Gospel was ushered into the world, it truly was Good News. This is why on almost every page of his epistles, he breaks forth with hymns and joy whenever he reflects on the great mystery hidden from all ages that had now been revealed in his day. Certainly as we reflect on the great gift Paul is to the Church, there is much we as part of the Christendom College clan can learn and take to heart during these challenging times. Let us renew and recommit ourselves with the same type of untiring loyalty St. Paul manifested in his life to boldly proclaim to everyone, “in season and out of season,” the truth of our Holy Catholic Faith. Let us boldly proclaim that life has been answered in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our spes unica, our one hope. And let us seek in our own lives to implement and live an authentically Christian life, in order that the light of our lives might shine out in the present darkness. May God bless you all during the Christmas season, and may all of us during this year dedicated to the great apostle Paul, “have Christ dwelling through faith in [our] hearts: so that, being rooted and grounded in love, [we] may be able to comprehend with all the saints which is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, in order that [we] may be filled unto all the fullness of God.” Eph 3:17-19 A Blessed Christmas to you all,

College Celebrates Feast of Christ the King with Procession and Consecration


On November 23, Christendom College marked its patronal feast of Christ the King with a solemn Mass, Eucharistic procession, and festive brunch. College President Dr. Timothy O’Donnell led the entire community in a consecration prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary following the Mass.

proclaim Christ as king of all men and creation.” The Feast of Christ the King was instituted in 1925 by Pope Pius XI with his encyclical Quas Primas.

Christendom has celebrated this great feast annually since 1992, by saying the consecration prayers as a College community. In a symbolic gesture aimed to unite everyone in the community, the College sent the consecration prayers to friends, donors, and the College students who were traveling abroad on their way home from their Junior Semester in Rome. “The word ‘Christendom’ means ‘reign of Christ,’” Dr. O’Donnell said, “so this feast is naturally important for our College, but it is also important for the world. Both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI have encouraged the celebration of this feast. At a time when society seems to be overrun by the culture of death, it is fitting to

Dr. O’Donnell led the entire community in the annual consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Major Speakers Program Brings Catholic Intellectuals to Campus


Christendom’s Major Speakers Program was in full swing during the fall semester, showcasing three top-notch speakers, Dr. Scott Hahn, Mrs. Camille Pauley, and Mr. Russell Shaw, who each enthralled the College community with their respective lectures. The College Speakers Program, an important aspect of the academic life at the College, offers the students and community an opportunity for cultural, intellectual, and spiritual enrichment beyond the classroom. The Speakers Program gives students the opportunity to gain

greater insights and depth of understanding in regards important issues, and to interact personally with a wide range of influential men and women who are shapers and critics of our society. World-renowned Scripture scholar and Theology professor Dr. Scott Hahn launched the Major Speakers Program, delivering a lecture on “The Gospel According to St. Paul,” on September 29. “In the last forty years, not Catholic, but Protestant biblical scholars are the ones who have caused us to revisit Paul and rethink many misunderstandings of Paul that are rooted in Luther’s own misreading,” Hahn began. His lecture focused both on Paul’s conversion and his understanding of Christ. Quoting scripture Hahn said, “‘Though he was in the form of God, he did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped’ … a better translation would read, ‘He did not count equality with God something to be exploited for personal advantage.’” As a Pharisee, Paul’s justification for persecuting the Christians was Christ’s claim to equality with God. After his conversion, Paul sees that it is the cross that exactly displays Christ’s equality with God, Hahn said. An exceptionally popular author, speaker, and teacher, Hahn has delivered numerous talks nationally and internationally on a wide variety of topics related to Scripture and the Catholic faith.

Scott Hahn kicked off Christendom’s Major Speakers Program by delivering a talk on St. Paul on September 29.

In his address, Hahn told the audience that although we tend to


think that Paul fell off a horse when he had his vision and converted, in reality, there is no mention of a horse, just a bright light.

She asserted that it is not enough that we have an intelligent explanation and sophisticated defense of the pro-life movement.

Paul was not converted in the traditional sense, but was called by Christ and converted “not from Judaism to Christianity, but from a naturalistic understanding of the Jewish faith to truly supernatural experience of the divine grace and righteousness of God through Christ,” he said.

“Our arguments are far more sophisticated than the other side,” she said. “But it is not enough that we have that sophisticated dialogue. We must also give people a reason to care. Too many people have bought into the lie that what makes life worth living is material wealth, possessions, popularity, admiration, and ego-high. They buy into this lie.”

Hahn also gave deep insights into some of Paul’s writings, pointing out that it was St. Paul who first used the term “Body” for the Church, with Christ as the Head and all the members comprising the body. Hahn concluded by exhorting his listeners to realize that conversion is not something that happens once, but something that happens continuously. “Every day we must take up our cross and follow Him,” he said. “We do not simply convert and we are saved once and for all. We must change our lives, as St. Paul did, and follow Christ daily.” Pro-life educator Camille Pauley delivered a talk on the various methods for changing the culture on October 13. “There is something embedded in the root of our culture that is missing out on the most important thing about life,” President and Co-Founder of Healing the Culture Camille Pauley said, “and it is because of this that our culture is in dire straits.” Pauley enumerated and explained the “ten life principles” in her lively address. The principles logically proved that the unborn child is a person, all persons have intrinsic dignity, all beings with intrinsic dignity have inalienable rights, and therefore, the unborn child has an inalienable right to life.

Pauley urged listeners to both pray for a prolife culture and give a good example through how they live, so that they can become living witnesses to others about what makes life truly worth living. “If you want a pro-life culture, teach the culture about what is truly worthy of them,” she concluded. “Because if they don’t know who they are, if they don’t value the goodness and dignity and the image and likeness of God in themselves, they will not value the dignity and likeness of God in an unborn child. Give them that gift—the gift of love, the gift of faith, and the gift of hope—and you will build a pro-life culture.” The College community was privileged to welcome renowned Catholic journalist Russell Shaw, who discussed the topic of secrecy in the Church and how it has led to some difficult situations in recent times. “The abuse of secrecy has played a part in some of the most serious problems of the Church, and it goes on doing that at all levels from parishes to the national level and beyond,” Russell Shaw said in his November 3 talk entitled “Secrecy vs. Communio in the Catholic Church.” “It is withholding information that begets ignorance,” Shaw said, “and the only way to correct it is by sharing information and supplying explanations as needed.” Shaw is author or coauthor of 20 books and a contributor to and/or editor of several others. His most recent book is Nothing To Hide: Secrecy, Communication, and Communion in the Catholic Church. Shaw has published thousands of magazine and newspaper articles, columns, and reviews in US and foreign periodicals.

Mrs. Pauley speaks with senior Kieran DuFrain following her talk on changing the culture.


“The clergy abuse scandal–an official concealment–in other words, cover-up—is an especially painful instance, but there are

Catholic journalist Russell Shaw spoke on secrecy in the Catholic Church. many others,” Shaw said. He explained that clericalism is a key factor in the abuse of secrecy in the Church. Both the laity and clerics alike contribute to clericalism, which has its roots in a deficient theology of vocation. The culture of clericalism encourages people to think that priests and religious are the only people who should be in charge and then attributes to them a benevolent paternalism. The laity are then seen as a permanent ecclesiastic under class. This stifles the channels of communications and allows unneeded secrecy to flourish. “The Catholic Church has a right to practice secrecy, in fact a grave duty to do that, when secrecy is necessary to protect important human goods, especially the good name and privacy of individuals,” Shaw clarified. He pointed out that the Church will always have the Sacraments, the fullness of God’s Revelation, the means of salvation, and will remain a communio—a communion of faith. However, on the human level, our communion as Church is impaired by the practice of unnecessary secrecy. “That—nothing else—is the target of my criticism,” he said. “To be sure, communion in the Church is a spiritual reality that far transcends ordinary human community and communication—that goes without saying. But grace does build on nature, and ordinary human standards of community and communication must be observed for the sake of ecclesial communion itself.” All of these talks may be listened to online at Christendom on iTunes U.

Newest Board Member Establishes Scholarship with $300K Donation


During its annual meeting in September, Christendom’s Board of Directors voted approvingly to have alumnus Steve O’Keefe ‘93 join the Board. “I am honored to be asked to serve on the Board,” he said. “Education is the key human endeavor to change the culture for the good. I could not be more pleased to be able to be part of one of the premier institutions restoring value to the university experience.” Following graduation from Christendom with a BA in history, Steve O’Keefe pursued a career in the IT field, working with fellow graduate Sean Garvey. In June 2000, he and O’Keefe founded Novus Consulting Group, a business which focused primarily on enterprise storage consulting. After its first six months, the company reached $1 million in revenue, and in late 2007, due to the overwhelming success of the company, they agreed to be purchased by IBM. At lunch with College President Timothy O’Donnell earlier this year, O’Keefe told a moving story about how his late father, Edward O’Keefe, gradually persuaded him to enroll at Christendom College. He had wanted to go to a state college where he would have received a handsome athletic scholarship, but his father was determined to have him attend Christendom. After just a little while at college, O’Keefe said he soon realized attending Christendom was the “best thing that could have happened to me.” Mindful of the overwhelmingly positive impact the Christendom experience has had upon their lives, Steve and his wife, Paula (Quest, ‘94), pledged a most generous gift of $300,000 to the College. They want to make it possible for young Christendom students to experience the same authentic Catholic atmosphere, coupled with the rigorous academic education that defined their own college years in Front Royal. To make this happen, they have designated a substantial portion of this gift to honor the memory of O’Keefe’s late father by establishing a new scholarship, the Edward T. O’Keefe Memorial Endowed Scholarship. The O’Keefe Scholarship will provide substantial financial assistance to qualified history majors at Christendom College.

Steve and Paula O’Keefe with their lovely family. The O’Keefe Scholarship will achieve the “The O’Keefe Scholarship is the College’s O’Keefes’ goal by providing a one-quarter tu- 27th endowed scholarship,” says John Cisition to a one-half tuition scholarship annually kanik, Vice President for Advancement. “As and in perpetuity for qualifying Christendom the sum value of all Christendom endowed students. The O’Keefe Scholarship – the first scholarships approaches $5,000,000, this ever created by a single gift from a member of portion of the endowment typically awards the alumni ranks – will be an important part up to $200,000 in tuition support year afof the College’s strategic plan to ensure Chris- ter year. Endowed scholarships are gifts that keep on giving!” tendom’s survival year after year.

Men’s Soccer Team Has Historic Season Dedicated to Former Coach


The Christendom College men’s soccer team completed one of the most successful seasons for any sport in Christendom history this past fall, finishing with a record of 6-1-1. The ground-work was laid early in the semester, in fact, the players arrived on campus a week before anyone else to prepare for a special season, one that would see 7 players score; a team without even one senior; a final winning streak of the last 4 games; and a grand finale at the end with the defense not allowing a goal in over 200 minutes of play.

Freshman Paul Nangurai, of Kenya, surprised many with his great talent.

Sophomore Johnny Ciskanik was one of the leading scorers for the season.

Team Captain Ryan Doughty led his team in one of the best seasons in Crusader history.


The team practiced 3 times a day including an early morning run during their mini-camp, attended daily Mass, and said the rosary after dinner as a team along with the women’s soccer team who were also having a mini-camp. The chemistry of the team was evident in the well-balanced attack that Christendom possessed. In total, seven players scored, including Junior Captain Ryan Doughty who netted 7 goals and had 4 assists. Sophomore Johnny Ciskanik finished the year with 5 goals and 3 assists while freshmen Paul Nangurai and Peter McNeely each added 3 goals and 6 assists, and fellow freshman Joseph Stephens rounded out the leading scorers with 4 goals and 5 assists. While the offense was powerful, the defense was determined and effective. Led by freshmen Brandon Gorman and Michael Bugin, opposing team offenses were suffocated and frustrated by the Crusaders’ physical defense. Sophomores Sam McMahon and James Hannon also played important roles in the defense, showing leadership during prac-

tices and games. The team finished ranked 6th in the USCAA. Ryan Doughty finished 7th in the USCAA in points per game. Possibly the biggest highlight of the year was the way in which the Crusaders beat their opponents. A majority of the goals were scored in the second half and games that were tied or close at halftime were broken open due to the great endurance and determination of the team. A perfect example of their endurance is the championship game of the Shenandoah Chesapeake Conference against Patrick Henry College, where the score was 0-0 at halftime. The second half was a different story as Christendom scored 2 goals to win the game 2-0. Other highlights throughout the year included freshman Paul Nangurai’s first goal, which resulted in a celebration that rivals World Cup enthusiasm, much to the delight of the Christendom fans who came out to the game. Ryan Doughty’s opening game 4-goal performance and the final game where the Crusaders wore black armbands with the initials “TVW 9-8-08” in remembrance of Mr. Tom Vander Woude, former coach and Christendom Athletic Director who passed away on September 8, 2008, were both memorable events. The Crusaders dedicated the remainder of their season to Vander Woude’s memory and, as Providence would have it, didn’t lose another game! With no seniors on the team to lose at graduation, the Crusaders are excited about what next year will bring!

Lady Crusaders Make Christendom Sports History in USCAA Tourney


This year’s women’s soccer team has been the most successful team in the past 6 years, and possibly in the history of the College. The Lady Crusaders, under the guidance of 4-year coach Mike Miller and his wife Kaylie (Minick, ‘04), orchestrated another great year for the women’s soccer team, finishing 8-3 with a regular season ranking of 3rd in the USCAA. The team finished the regular season with a record of 6-2 with both losses coming by just one goal to soccer powers Southern Virginia University (NAIA) and Lancaster Bible College (DIII). The Lady Crusaders proceeded to defeat all other opponents, including USCAA rival Columbia Union with a decisive 5-0 victory. The team was led by senior Ky Leopold who, in her four years at Christendom, has become the all-time leading scorer in Lady Crusader’s history with over 70 goals. Fellow seniors Hilary Schafer, Mairin Vieira, and Courtney Nelson have accompanied Ky on an amazing four-year journey on the soccer field. The Crusaders ended their season by playing in the USCAA national tournament in Burlington, VT, on October 29, where they entered the competition ranked 3rd overall and a first round victory would give the Lady Crusaders Christendom’s first-ever, firstround win in the USCAA. With both the number-one and -two ranked teams having

barely beaten Christendom earlier in the season, the team’s confidence grew. In the first-round match, the Lady Crusaders dominated their opponent, the 2007 USCAA champions Robert Morris – Springfield, and posted a final score of 3-0, with two goals being scored by freshmen Katie Coyne and Cecilia O’Reilly. With that victory, history had been made and a date in the semifinals with Penn College was to come. Penn College, having beaten Christendom earlier in the season and Christendom playing without 2 of their starters, no doubt felt like the game was theirs, but the Lady Crusaders were not finished and ended up beating Penn College with two goals by Ky Leopold, again making history as the Crusaders entered the finals.

Senior Ky Leopold scored two goals in the final game against Columbia Union.

Unfortunately, in the final game, the soccer powerhouse Southern Virginia University, a member of the NAIA, prevailed and claimed the championship. Mairin Vieira and freshman Theresa Nelson were named to the USCAA all-tournament team. But no disappointment was felt by the Christendom Lady Crusaders, who had beaten all odds. A large silver trophy now adorns the lobby of the gym as proof of their skill, dedication, and hard work that enabled them to finish 2nd in the nation in the USCAA and mark their place in Crusader history.

Freshman Cecilia O’Reilly added a lot of energy to this year’s team.

Senior Courtney Nelson finished her 4-year career as a Lady Crusader with a win.

Senior Mairin Vieira scored the final goal in her last game at home.


Talented Students Found Playing and Singing in The Secret Garden


The Christendom Players, directed by alumnus Mike Powell, gave four outstanding performances of the musical, The Secret Garden, on November 21, 22, and 23.

Alumnus Jonathan Dittert directed the orchestra, comprised mostly of freshmen, that provided a wonderful accompaniment for the actors.

Freshman Dominic De Souza (l) played Dr. Neville Craven, the brother of Archibald Craven, played by seasoned actor Cyrus Artz.

Freshman Meghan Kelly (l) played the lead role of Mary Lennox, a ten year old orphaned girl while her roommate, Freshman Brianna Miller, took on the role of Colin Craven, a ten year old boy. Freshman Jacqueline Kenney’s portrayal of the deceased Lily Craven was amazing, as was her operatic voice.

Meghan Kelly’s beautiful voice made the production an absolute joy to watch, and the Yorkshire accent put on by Senior Bridget Randolph was sensational.

Senior Tim Curran added humor and professionalism with his portrayal of the Scot named Dickon.

Fr. James Schall Explains Importance of Docility in Education


“Everyone knows of someone with a very high IQ who never did anything with it,” Fr. James Schall, SJ, told the audience of a crowded Thomas Aquinas Lecture Hall on November 6. “He never achieved his potential, as they say—we may even suspect it of ourselves.”

The Cincinnatus League of Christendom College and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute sponsored Schall’s lecture, entitled “Docilitas: Its Importance for Liberal Education and Knowing What It Is.” Schall, a Professor in the Department of Government at Georgetown University, has written numerous books, including: Reason, Revelation, and the Foundations of Political Philosophy and Jacques Maritain: The Philosopher in Society. He also writes columns for Gilbert! and Schall explained to his Christendom audience that not everyone is teachable, but it requires a certain disposition on the part of


the student—an openness to receive the gift of knowledge.

“I’ve always loved that Latin word docilitas— the capacity of being taught,” Schall said. “‘Teachableness’ implies something beyond IQ’s—or whatever is said to measure one’s native intellectual capacity. Not only our capacity to know, but also our desire from within to know and do something to acquire knowledge of what we know we do not yet know.”

Student and current President of the Cincinnatus League Tara Jackson found the talk “to be a breath of fresh air, especially after the election of our nation’s most liberal president. It was so refreshing to hear very astute and conservative advice explaining that a liberal arts education is about living the Truth in humility.” This lecture can be heard online at Christendom on iTunes U.

Schall said that the reason why we are not interested in a particular subject is not because something is wrong with that subject, but that there is something wrong with us. “So you recall what Chesterton once said, ‘There is no such thing as an uninteresting subject. There are only uninterested people,’” Schall said. Much of our “teachableness” comes from our upbringing. He pointed out that Chesterton and Aristotle have noted that we need to be brought up with fine habits if we are to be adequate students of what is fine and just.

Fr. James Schall spoke on docility during his lecture on November 6.

The President’s Report Dear Friends, May the peace of Christ be with you in this joyous season! Please accept my heartfelt thanks in the form of this Annual Giving Report. I thank you for supporting Christendom with your prayers and sacrifices, and for the messages of encouragement you have sent to me personally. I thank you also, and especially, for your unflagging financial support of Christendom College during such difficult economic times. Now more than ever. Is there any area in our society that doesn’t need Christendom College graduates? Business, law, politics, film, science, family, art, literature, the Church; who doesn’t need graduates who are articulate in their faith, bright and capable, wise beyond their years, able and willing to take on any challenge? Who doesn’t need discerning, critical thinkers, solution providers, effective communicators, pursuing that which is just, true, and noble? If you’ll let me have the next 3 ½ minutes of your time, I’ll explain why today, more than ever before, Christendom College is doing an urgent work for the Church, for our beloved nation, and for the world. Recall that during the period from 1966–1976, much of Western civilization made a decisive break with its Christian roots. The result is that we have largely lost sight of the Christian foundations of our civilization and its freedoms. The solution, of course, is to re-evangelize our civilization by helping our brothers and sisters to encounter Christ. But this brings us face-to-face with the heart of the problem: many people today can neither remember nor imagine what a Christian culture actually looks like. What is needed then, are men and women who possess the education, vision, and drive to renew society. It was for this purpose that Christendom College was founded in 1977: to provide a Catholic liberal arts education, an education grounded in natural and supernatural truth; an education that, paradoxically, is eminently practical; an education for the student who believes in the necessity and possibility of a more Christianoriented social order. Christendom College exists, then, to prepare men and women for their task of transforming the culture—in their own homes, in the places where they work, and in their social lives— by sharing their faith in Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church. Thus will they assist in the re-Christianization of our civilization, a worthy goal that will not be without cost. Annual Investment. Daily Impact. A Christendom education, like all things good and worthy, carries a price. As you probably know, the true cost of this education is not fully covered by tuition. There is a gap. To close this gap, each year Christendom must raise additional funds from generous individuals like you and from other charitable sources.

Many colleges and universities close this gap through the use of government funds, or through the financial support of their large, multigenerational base of alumni. Christendom College has neither. In order to remain free of undue government intervention, Christendom remains one of only four private Colleges nationwide who accept no Federal funds (Hillsdale College, Grove City College, and Patrick Henry College being the other three). Then too, being a relatively young college (only 31 years old!), Christendom’s alumni family is still young and growing. I am deeply grateful to all of you alumni of other colleges who have made Christendom your adoptive “alma mater,” and have blessed the College with your gifts year in and year out. Last year (the 2007-08 school year) the gap between tuition revenues and Christendom’s true costs totaled $1.8 million. This Annual Giving Report is a celebration of your part in the successful achievement of that goal. In the pages that follow, you will find the names of each and every supporter of Christendom during the 2007-08 academic year, listed by their President’s Council or Giving Club levels. This issue also highlights Corporate Matching Gifts, recent Planned Gifts, and all Scholarships and Scholarship Recipients. Finally, you will find the first annual listing of Alumni Class giving competitions. For this 2008-09 school year, “the gap” (and therefore our fundraising goal) stands at $1,925,000. I hope you will agree that this is truly a bargain for a full year’s preparation of the 421 students now being formed! As this Report went to press, $604,000 (31%) has already been contributed, with $1.3 million still to be raised. This is good news, since donations during the joyous season of Christmas account, on average, for 50% of the College’s fundraising goal. Annual Giving truly is the lifeblood of Christendom College, supporting everything from financial aid to the preservation of the beautiful campus and its facilities. Your gifts to Christendom College change people’s lives – in Front Royal, Virginia, and around the world. In many cases, your gifts afford students the opportunity to receive one of the finest and most rigorous Catholic educations available anywhere. Whether your gift is large or small, it has an impact—at the College, in the Church and on our beloved nation—that far exceeds the actual dollar amount. Once again, I thank you. Everything that happens at the College happens because of you. Sincerely in the Heart of the Newborn Savior,

Timothy T. O’Donnell, STD, KGCHS P.S. If you have not yet made your gift this academic year, I urge you to do so today using the enclosed envelope. Your investment in the College truly makes a difference for our students and faculty every single day. May God give you every joy this Christmastide!


2007-08 HONOR ROLL OF CONTRIBUTORS The following pages recognize gifts made to Christendom College during the fiscal year from June 1, 2007, to May 31, 2008.

Wisdom from Christendom’s Founding President The years 1966–1976 were the years when Christendom died— when the revolutionary spirit of the late sixties made so sharp a break with the past that the concept of Western Christian civilization became no more than a distant memory. The very word “Christendom” dropped out of the language. Though most Americans still called themselves Christians, most could no longer define what a Christian was. Then, those of us who by God’s grace still kept the Faith were called by Him not only to keep it alive, but to re-evangelize in every possible way despite the opposition of the post-Christian society in which we had to work and the post-Christian world view which permeated our culture. The purpose and goals of Christendom College are: · To provide a fully and truly Catholic liberal arts education equal in quality to any in the country. · To maintain the idea of Christendom as an arrangement of temporal affairs animated by Christian principles and permeated by Christian culture. · To provide a beautiful setting where students can not only study—but also see and experience—a Christian social order. In sum, it is Christendom’s goal to graduate students who possess the capability for logical thought and clear, effective and persuasive expression, and who are also prepared to help reshape the entire temporal order, striving always for lives of the greatest possible influence. One man can make a difference! —Dr. Warren H. Carroll (cf. “A Brief History of Christendom College,” 1997)

Planned Gifts

This year a number of friends of the College made several planned gifts, including gifts of charitable gift annuities. Christendom also received a number of bequests or trust provisions during the year. By making Christendom the beneficiary of these plans, these donors have provided for the future of Christendom students for years to come. Some of these arrangements provide significant tax advantages and/or provide an income for the life of the donor or another beneficiary. Gifts were received from the following donors or estates in the 200708 fiscal year. We thank them for their far-sighted and generous provisions for Christendom, and recommend them to your prayers.

IRA charitable rollovers have returned! Legislation President Bush signed into law on October 3, 2008, extended opportunities for IRA owners age 70½ to make direct, tax-free transfers to Christendom College — up to $100,000 in both 2008 and 2009. People 70½ and older can take advantage of this opportunity to give up to $100,000 tax-free to Christendom before December 31, 2008, and again before December 31, 2009. Details: ~Direct transfer from regular/Roth IRA accounts to Christendom. ~Such transfers may be designated (e.g., Financial Aid, Chapel of Christ the King expansion, etc.) ~Such transfers may fulfill documented pledges (e.g., Annual Fund pledge, etc.) ~These IRA charitable rollovers will qualify—in part or in whole—for the yearly required minimum distributions for persons age 70½ and older. ~While IRA owners cannot take an income tax deduction for this transfer, neither will they have to realize it as taxable income.

A Message from the Vice President for Advancement

The College counts on your prayerful and financial support year in and year out. Nothing that happens at the College could happen without you. The Annual Fund supports the entire experience at Christendom College and targets the most pressing needs in education—scholarships, teaching and

learning, and campus culture.

John F. Ciskanik

As Dr. O’Donnell’s highest priority, annual giving is the means by which Christendom College friends, alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff can most effectively contribute their financial support

for education and student life. The Annual Fund is used by Dr. O’Donnell exclusively to support today’s students. Christendom College encourages participation at all levels. The cost of a Christendom education is not fully covered by tuition. Please see the enclosed envelope to find out how you can help fill the gap. Want to double or triple your gift?

Many companies match or exceed charitable contributions made by their employees. To see if you are eligible, please contact your benefits or human resources department. When should I make my annual gift? Your gift is most needed today! However, the College’s fiscal year runs June 1 through May 31. So by making a gift early you help the college plan and budget for campus needs more efficiently.


Development Director Grundman Achieves Fundraising Certification


Stephen Grundman, Christendom’s Director of Development, recently achieved the status of Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE), which serves as an impartial, third-party endorsement of an individual’s knowledge and experience against international standards in philanthropy. It adds credibility to the fundraiser and sets him apart from other professionals, preparing him for greater on-the-job responsibilities. “Occasionally, I’ve had a donor or colleague ask how my PhD in Philosophy prepared me to be a fundraiser,” says Grundman.

“That’s why I got my CFRE. It tells the world I’m a fundraiser – that I’m dedicated to the profession. You have to have a minimum of at least five years of successful fundraising experience before you even qualify as a candidate to take the exam.” “Stephen’s achievement of the CFRE credential raises the level of professionalism in our department even higher,” said

Vice President Ciskanik. “Really it’s a feather not only in his cap, but for our entire office.” The CFRE exam is designed to test the baseline fundamental knowledge a candidate would have after 5 years. The exam covers a broad range of topics and does not expect expertise in any specific area. For more information, see www.cfre. org.

Virginia’s 10th District Congressman Frank Wolf Talks to Students Christendom was honored on October 15 with a visit from its congressman, Frank Wolf, R-VA.

Congressman Wolf, representing Virginia’s 10th District since 1981, has a long record of speaking out for the persecuted around the world and is considered one the leading crusaders in Congress for human rights. Cong. Frank Wolf (center) with Christendom Political Science students and Prof. The Congressman’s Bernie Way. visit was arranged by

Christendom’s College Republicans. In his address, he warned students of the various economic challenges currently facing America. “We need to reallocate spending and put it in other areas, to truly create a renaissance—to do what your parents and your grandparents did for you—so I can say to my youngest grandkid, ‘Noah, America’s best days are yet ahead and the sun has barely begun to rise.’” The Congressman explained that when America becomes weakened the world becomes a more dangerous place. “As we become weaker economically, the world becomes a more dangerous place. There are forces out there that want to destroy us... It isn’t important only for us and our nation, but for the world... When we become weakened as a nation, around the world, it becomes more dangerous, particularly for people who are oppressed. “The challenge I give to you is that you need to become a part of this. You’ve got to have some passion! You have to care! ...You’ve got to understand and you’ve got to be a part of the solution, because if you’re not part of the solution, you really almost become part of the problem... This is the time to participate and to really be involved. We’ve got to take care of this economy, to get control of this debt, and to bring about a renaissance in this nation, because when we do, it’s good for us, but also it has a calming influence around the world. We are the nation always that stands by the poor and the hungry.” This talk may be heard on Christendom’s iTunes U.


New Alert and Notification System Implemented College-Wide


Christendom has adopted e2Campus, a notification system that enables school administrators to notify its constituents of important information via email, voice, and text messages. “In the wake of such horrific events as the Virginia Tech shooting, hurricanes, flooding, or other natural disasters, it is important

that we are able to get the word out to our community as soon as possible,” says Vice President for Planning and Operations Mike Foeckler. “And this new system will serve our purposes well.”

Your investment in the College truly makes the difference for our students and faculty every single day. Gifts to the Annual Fund have an immediate impact on Christendom because they support all aspects of operating the college—from keeping classroom and Chapel lights on to providing merit- and need-based scholarships. Annual gifts support Christendom’s most pressing needs and help create a vibrant campus community.

“Once students sign up, the alerts go right to their cell phones the minute the news happens,” explains Foeckler. “It’s a real convenient system for everyone, because it reaches people whether they are on campus or off campus.” Although still in its early stages, the notification system

will be used to communicate important information during any potential emergency, such as a snow delay or closing, homeland security advisory, weather warning, gas leak, fire, crime watch, power failure, parking lot closure, or other events. It can also be used to announce school sports scores, registration deadlines, and campus life activities. “This new system will enable a greater broadcast of time-sensitive communication to reach students, faculty, and staff whether they are in class, at home, or at their office desk,” says Tom McFadden, Director of Admissions and Marketing, and in the case of an emergency, the college’s public information officer. “Hopefully, we learn from others’ mistakes about what not to do in an emergency, and now we can be more aware of how to handle a situation, should one arise in the future.” Additionally, Christendom has begun setting up interfaces with e2Campus and the college’s website, digital visual displays, and loudspeakers.

Students Flood Campus During Admissions Office Visit Weekends


A new initiative in the Admissions Office this year was the institution of Visit Weekends. Rather than having prospective high school juniors and seniors visit on any weekend throughout the semester, Admissions Director Tom McFadden created 4 different Visitor Weekends that would entice students to visit with many other prospective students. The last of the Fall semester Visit Weekends was held November 21-23, and attracted more than 40 students to campus. According to high school senior Catherine

Burke from Florida, “The best part about Christendom College is that it already feels like a spiritual home, which is perfect, considering college is more than a place to earn a degree, but rather a place where you will spend four of the most important years that will end up forming you for the rest of your life.” Burke had attended the Experience Christendom High School Program last summer and came to visit with a group of her fellow “campers” to have a reunion and to visit the College while it was in session.

Admissions Director Tom McFadden talks with a group of visitors.

“Walking around the campus and attending classes and Mass, there was no doubt that God was everywhere, surrounding the school with His graces. As a Catholic, what is better than an environment in which I feel my soul will thrive? I am still completely open to wherever God leads me, but because of my visit, it is impossible to imagine myself not attending

Christendom,” she said. And Catey Maher from New York, who took part in the November 21-23 Visit Weekend soaking in everything that Christendom has to offer, agrees. “It’s so hard today, with all the ‘Catholic’ colleges promising the faith, but not really delivering. At Christendom, it’s different. Not only is the faith a priority among the faculty, but among the students as well,” she said. “Visiting a college is one of the best ways to determine if it is the place for you,” says McFadden. “When I meet with all of the students, I never tell them that they should come to Christendom. My only job is to tell them what Christendom College is and why it is different than other schools they might be looking into. Every student who visits definitely leaves here with a great idea of what kind of place Christendom is, and sometimes, they leave feeling that it isn’t for them, which is an achievement in itself. My recommendation is for all high school juniors and seniors to plan on visiting during one of our upcoming Visitor Weekends in the Spring. You will not be disappointed – I guarantee it!”

Dr. Warren Carroll Delivers Lively Lectures on Two Great Military Leaders: Alexander the Great and Lord Horatio Nelson


“He believed the gods of Homer and ancient Egypt were with him, and we know as Christians that the One True God must have been with him,” Dr. Warren Carroll said on September 22 during his public lecture on Alexander the Great. “For by his march across the world, Alexander the Great prepared the way for its conversion.” Carroll explained that due to the conquests of Alexander, the entire ancient world spoke Greek, which made it possible for the spreading of the teaching of the Gospels, which

whole civilized world. There is no convincing evidence that Alexander was driven by power and wealth for their own sakes, but the cultural unification of East and West was his explicit and announced objective,” Carroll said. “His teacher was the supreme Greek intellect, the philosopher Aristotle,” Carroll noted. “Alexander was always a Greek first, and considered himself the guardian and champion of Hellenic culture. “He was the greatest general of all time…He might have conquered the world, but died before he was forty, with his armies at the border of China. He was a meteor and transformer of history, who created the Hellenistic world through which the Gospel of Jesus Christ spread three hundred years later.” Carroll delighted his audience with the story of the great Englishman, Lord Horatio Nelson, during the second in his series of fall lectures on October 27.

were written in Greek. “Alexander’s conquests united the world of the Middle East with the Classical world of Greece and Rome—for the first time in history,” Carroll said. “Jew and Greek entered the same cultural orbit.” A convert to Christianity, Carroll was educated at Bates College and received a Doctorate of History from Columbia University. After founding Christendom College, he served as the College’s president until 1985 and then as the chairman of its History Department until his retirement in 2002. He is the author of numerous historical works, including The Rise and Fall of the Communist Revolution, 1917: Red Banners White Mantle, and his major multivolume work The History of Christendom. Carroll’s spirited lecture focused on the historic march of Alexander, whom he described as being “more an elemental force than a mortal man.” “Alexander never lost a battle and actually and deliberately aspired to take over the

“Nelson was not Catholic, but he saved the Catholic Church, which the French Revolution and Napoleon had sworn to destroy, and would have destroyed, were it not for Nelson’s victory at Trafalgar,” he began. The lecture gave a brief summary of Nelson’s life and his great victory over Napoleon’s French and Spanish navies at Trafalgar on October 21, 1805. Carroll explained that Napoleon, who inherited the French Revolution, had sought the destruction of the Catholic Church, imprisoning Pope Pius VII. “When the war ended and Napoleon had fittingly surrendered to a warship of the British Navy named Bellerophon, and was imprisoned for the rest of his life on St. Helena Island in the South Atlantic—the most isolated bit of land in the then known world— Pope Pius VII was still gloriously reigning,” Carroll said. “It was at the decisive victory of Trafalgar that Nelson died. All of England mourned the loss of their great admiral. More than thirty substantial monuments were created in England’s

surge of grief and pride,” he explained. “Few men have died so nobly and written their name so large upon the pages of history as Horatio Nelson,” Carroll concluded.

Faculty Speak at Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture Conference


Christendom College faculty members, Dr. Chris Shannon, Dr. Thomas Stanford, and Mrs. Mary Stanford, delivered papers at a conference held by the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture, held November 6-8, 2008. The faculty’s contributions were well received by both institutional leaders and attendees alike. Dr. Chris Shannon delivered a paper entitled “What Does It Take? Community and Family in Contemporary American Political Discourse.” Shannon, Assistant Professor of History, examined the contemporary American debate over the role of the family in society in light of the understanding of community at the heart of Catholic social teaching. “For the last thirty or so years, ‘family values’ has served as one of the major fault lines dividing left and right in American political discourse,” Shannon said. “Conservative Republicans came to political dominance in part by claiming to defend the family against attack from social engineering by liberal Democrats. Yet, the freemarket economic ideals espoused by the Republican Party have done just as much to

undermine the community stability necessary for family stability.” Dr. Thomas Stanford, Chairman of Christendom’s English Department, delivered a paper entitled “Membership and its Privileges: Family and Community in the Novels of Wendell Berry.” Stanford noted that all of Berry’s novels feature the same fictional setting, the Dr. Thomas Stanford, Mrs. Mary Stanford, and Dr. Chris Shannon delivered lectures at the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and small farming community of Culture Conference.

The Love of Wisdom Has Students Thinking About Philosophy


When students apply to Christendom, they are asked their intended major, and more often than not, they write history, theology, or political science. Rarely do students express a desire to major in philosophy.

But the philosophy department’s strong Catholic identity is not the only thing that sets it apart. Christendom students are required to take many more courses in philosophy than the average college student.

But over the past five years, 111 students have majored in philosophy, making it the second most popular major after history, which had 126 majors in the same time period.

“It exceeds what is found in most colleges or universities,” Flippen said. “This used to be fairly common—indeed four years of philosophy and theology were often found not so long ago—but at present the number of required courses in philosophy in colleges is down to one, two or three courses. The fact that we require all of our students to take six philosophy classes is unique.” According to Flippen, there are few philosophy programs that are solidly Thomistic and have a strong core of philosophy courses like Christendom’s.

There are a number of reasons for the great interest shown by the students toward philosophy after coming to Christendom, the two biggest being the subject matter and the very talented faculty in the philosophy department. “Our program is set apart from most other philosophy programs,” philosophy professor and Department Chairman Dr. Douglas Flippen said. “We take the thought of Aristotle, and especially of St. Thomas Aquinas, as essentially true, forming students in accord with their thought—then we are open to truth wherever it is found.” Philosophy, along with theology, dominates Christendom’s core curriculum, exposing students to the rich Catholic intellectual heritage enlightened by the Faith and right reason. Students learn how to use the gift of reason in order to grow in wisdom and defend reason itself.

Students at Christendom take courses that cover ancient Western philosophy, Aristotelian logic, ethics, philosophy of human nature, metaphysics, medieval philosophy, and modern philosophy. Flippen explained that unlike history, literature, and math, philosophy is open to connecting the whole of the physical world, and especially man, to God and generally to immaterial reality. “Philosophy makes that connection in a clear and reasoned way,” Flippen said. “In this way philosophy is the queen of the sciences on the natural level and is surpassed only by the-

ology because of the way theology bases itself on the special Revelation of God and uses other branches of knowledge to illuminate special Revelation.” Christendom alumni who have majored in philosophy do quite well in the workplace after graduation from the College. Philosophy majors go in to a variety of fields of work – Bennett Ellis (’01) is a software architect for IBM, Neill Mollard (’97) is an anesthesiologist, and Matthew Akers (’03) is a law clerk at the US Court of Appeals, to name just a few. “Life does not always follow the outline that we initially make for ourselves,” says FBI agent and philosophy major John Curran (‘91). “Often we find that God has other plans for us. These unexpected turns of life often reveal the true value of a liberal arts education from Christendom. Christendom’s core curriculum, with its emphasis on history, English, philosophy, and theology, teaches one to think critically and to approach whatever circumstances life may present in light of the larger issues. “I have discovered that the technical training required for a specific job can be obtained as needed. However, it is the education I received from Christendom that provided me with the foundation that has enabled me to get the job offers in the first place. Christendom prepared me well for the various positions I’ve had since graduation, and in particular, for my role as a Special Agent for the FBI,” he said.

Currently, there are 7 faculty members who teach philosophy courses: Prof. Mike Brown, Prof. Ray O’Herron, Dr. John Cuddeback, Dr. Greg Townsend, Dr. Doug Flippen, Prof. Mark Wunsch, and Dr. Steve Snyder. “Because so many popes through the ages, including the late John Paul II, have urged us to seriously study the thought of St. Thomas as a sure guide to much that is true about the nature of reality, our program is especially Catholic,” Flippen said.

College Gives Students Ample Opportunity for Sport and Recreation


Christendom gives its students the opportunity to play inter-collegiate sports (men’s soccer, basketball, rugby, and baseball; women’s volleyball, soccer, and basketball) but also provides many opportunities for intramural competition amongst students including flag football (both men’s and women’s), tennis, volleyball, whiffleball, dodgeball, 3-on-3 basketball, and much more. Christendom’s mission of “restoring all things in Christ” is not something that is relegated to the classroom or the Chapel, but rather, is a way of life that is lived day in and day out, even in the area of sports and recreation.
