The PHJC Ministry Center, located in Donaldson, IN, encompasses a variety of ministries.
On any given day, the Center is alive with activities: college students relating with their professors, a workshop group engaged in discussion, senior residents enjoying the warmth of friends, or children learning about the wonders of nature. Here at the Ministry Center one can find Convent Ancilla Domini, Catherine's Cottage, Catherine Kasper Life Center, Ancilla College, Lindenwood Retreat and Conference Center, MoonTree Community, Ancilla Beef and Grain Farm and Earthworks.
The Ministry Center is not the only place where Poor Handmaids live and minister. We are involved in a myriad of ministries around the world. We can be found in education, health care, social work, pastoral, spiritual and vocation ministry. We serve as counselors, spiritual directors, teachers, musicians and administrators. We work in diocesan offices, retreat centers, libraries, schools, hospitals and in mission lands. We partner with dedicated lay men and women serving others as did Catherine Kasper, the foundress of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. Our congregation recognizes the needs of the times and adapts its ministries to these evolving needs.
