Ecce Quam Bonum
Ecce quam bonum et quam jucundum, habitare fratres in unum.
Behold, how good it is, and how pleasant, where brothers dwell
Sicut unguentum in capite quod descendit in barbam, barbam Aaron.
It is as when the precious ointment upon the head runs down over the beard, the beard of Aaron.
Quod descendit in oram vestimenti ejus: sicut ros Hermon, qui descendit in montem Sion.
It runs down upon the collar of his robe like the dew of Hermon which comes down upon the mountains of Zion.
Quoniam illic mandavit Dominus benedictionem et vitam usque in saeculum.
For there the Lord has pronounced his blessing, life forever!
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Glory to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Dear Lasallians - Brothers and Partners,
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Anthony C. Chimera as Director of Development for Christian Brothers of the Midwest.
We were blessed with strong candidates and found in Anthony an ideal blend of professional background and Lasallian understanding and appreciation. To say he has both faith and zeal is an accurate description.
Anthony brings extensive advancement and Lasallian experience from his days at De La Salle, first as a student, and then for 16 years as a member of the Development Team. Following De La Salle, Anthony worked at Dominican University as the Executive Director of Development, and then served as Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Adler University, a graduate school in Chicago for social and health sciences, for 9 years.
At Adler, Anthony increased overall fundraising by 2100%, grew planned gift commitments by 25%, launched the University's corporate giving program, initiated the first naming campaign, planned and launched the $10 million comprehensive campaign, and dramatically increased grant revenue and alumni participation.
At Dominican, he planned and managed a $50 million campaign while supervising annual giving, corporate/foundation relations and planned giving.
Anthony started at De La Salle as Director of Alumni and Parent Relations, was promoted to Director of Development and then again to Vice President for Institutional Advancement. During his De La Salle years, he raised over $23 million.
Anthony holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Illinois/Chicago, an MBA from Dominican University, and is also a "graduate" of the Lasallian Leadership Institute.
Please join me in welcoming Anthony to the Development Team at Christian Brothers of the Midwest and keep all of us, and our efforts, in your prayers.
Live Jesus in Our Hearts - Forever!
Brother Larry Schatz, FSC
