Ancilla’s Lampen Lecture Focuses on Historial Chapel

September 22, 2011

09/23/11 Sr. Roberta Christianson, PHJC, was on hand as presenter for Ancilla College’s first Lampen Lecture of the semester, entitled “History, Architecture, and Symbols of our 1920 Chapel.”

In the presentation, Christianson focused on the historical background of the Ancilla Domini Chapel and examined the statues, stained glass windows, and wall paintings featured throughout the chapel.

“Sr. Roberta conveyed the wonder and the majesty of the Ancilla Domini Chapel amid the plethora of information and detail,” said Sr. Carleen Wrasman, PHJC, Coordinator of Mission Integration and Campus Ministry.  “I was amazed at the amount of information that Sr. Roberta was able to convey in the short 30 minutes.”

This Lampen Lecture was a free lecture open to the public and was held in the Ancilla Domini Chapel.

The series was named for Sr. Joel Lampen, the first president of Ancilla College, who opened the doors of Ancilla to the local community.

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.

Ancilla College is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
