Bob Schulte is a quiet giver. His generosity comes without fanfare or any expectations. You won’t see his name in the papers or hear about him on the news. And that’s how Bob likes it. He simply supports the Sisters of Notre Dame because he believes their work is valuable and far-reaching. His greatest witness to their work came in the form of his children’s education at Delphos St. John’s High School.
“The Sisters were wonderful role models to our children,” said Bob. “They learned that hard work and disciplined learning make a difference. The Sisters love what they’re doing and that was always evident to us and our children. The Sisters’ love and compassion was part of their everyday work,” said Bob. “We were always amazed at how they did so much with so little.”
“Bob and his family are like many of the donors who support us,” said Sr. Mary Delores. “We are blessed that they have witnessed our work first hand and want to support us in our mission.” For the past 140 years, many Sisters of Notre Dame enjoyed their years of teaching at St. John’s.
“Many people, like the Schultes, have recognized the value of our educational mission that’s so integral to our work,” Sister Delores said. “Along the way, Bob and others have become familiar with our work among the poor and marginalized.”
“It’s a great comfort and blessing to us to know that Bob and other donors continue to give, long after their children have graduated and started lives of their own,” she said. “Not only are we grateful for their support, we are confident that their works will be rewarded,”
Sister Delores said. “In Luke 6:38, the Lord said “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
