6 COVER FEATURE Rev. Francis J. Hicks 63 leaves career, alcohol behind By DIANE M. STERRETT The surprising twists and turns of his life s journey resemble the trails he rides in the hills of Los Angeles on one of his nine Harley-Davidsons. His first career took him from Thailand to Texas, then Los Angeles to Laos, and back to Los Angeles. His roles evolved from gun-wielding INS agent to blood-giving priest ordained at age 58. And, his relationship with God swung from devout Irish-Catholic child, to agnostic adult, to compassionate priest. Meet the very candid Rev. Francis J. Hicks 63, or Father Frank, a recovering alcoholic who s the pastor of a large, multicultural parish in Los Angeles, a chaplain in the Los Angeles Police Department, a biker, and an unabashedly proud and fulfilled individual. I had a career that I enjoyed, but I thrive with my vocation, said Father Frank. I am totally committed to my ministry. I m doing what I think I m called to do. I m interacting with people who are in need. >>> PROVIDENCE COLLEGE I FALL 2012

8 COVER FEATURE THROUGH AA, I FOUND THAT I DID NOT HAVE AN ADVERSARIAL GOD. I HAD AN ALLY. Sometimes that ministry takes place from the seat of a motorcycle. All of his adult life, Father Frank has collected Harley-Davidsons he also owns a fire engine-red 1951 British MGTD Mark II convertible using them as both a diversion and a tool. He rides with current and retired police officers around the hills of L.A. and on weekend trips to San Luis Obispo and Death Valley. You can talk to (police) at the station, but they re not going to share the same things they would when they re with you on a ride for three or four days, said Father Frank. They develop a familiarity that makes it easy for them to talk to me. Father Frank began his career with the Peace Corps after graduating from Providence College with a bachelor s degree in political science. He spent four years in rural Thailand, working on community development. It was there his love for motorcycles began with a Honda that carried him to remote areas and through rice paddies. One of the positions Father Frank, second from left, held during his 23-year federal government career was that of U.S. Border Patrol agent. Here he is pictured with three classmates from the Border Patrol Academy in Upon returning to the U.S., he joined the Department of Justice s Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). He was appointed to the U.S. Border Patrol at Fort Hancock, Texas, where he bought his first motorcycle with his third paycheck. He later transferred to Criminal Investigations in Los Angeles and rose through the ranks over a 23-year career, thanks in part to his ability to speak Thai and Lao. Later in his career, he was assigned to the U.S. Attorney s office for Asian organized crime, working with several other agencies. His primary thrust was the Thai community and Asian drug smuggling. I enjoyed the challenge: enforcing the law, making cases, going to trial, being a witness, things of that sort, he said. A REVELATION But in 1989, Father Frank came to the realization that he no longer had control over his consumption of alcohol. Here I was interviewing people suspected of being on duty under the influence of alcohol, and I wasn t too many steps from them, he said. I came to the conclusion I just could not stop. There seemed to be a kind of divine intervention. He came back to Rhode Island and checked into an alcohol treatment center. He was introduced to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and spent a month in outpatient treatment. At the time he was somewhat agnostic. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE I FALL 2012

9 It was out of desperation I turned back to the God of my understanding, the God of Isaac, Abraham, and Jacob. Through AA, I found that I did not have an adversarial God. I had an ally, he explained. So often growing up in a 1940s, Irish-Catholic, New England household, God was used adversarially. You know: You do this, he s going to punish you. Compassion was not one of the strong suits. I found a loving, supportive God, and that s the God I ve carried into my ministry. I found out I could say to a person, I ve walked in your shoes and you ve walked in mine, so let s walk together. Father Frank attributes his vocation directly to becoming sober. I was enjoying my sobriety, and I had this sense that came to me, If you think you have it good now, do I have something planned for you. It was as subtle as that. I had this sense God had something better for me to do, he said. CERTIFIED CHAPLAIN TO THE FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL CENTER, TERMINAL ISLAND, CALIF. MEMBER, Chaplains Advisory Board FOR the Chief of Police, With three years left until retirement from the INS, Father Frank knew he had to make a choice about his life. He prayed on his calling and discussed it with his parish priest, a Benedictine. He retired just shy of his 52nd birthday and spent a year of discernment at St. Gregory s Benedictine Abbey in Shawnee, Okla. MEMBER, BENEVOLENT AND PROTECTIVE ORDER OF ELKS I had the intention of remaining in the Benedictine community, but I discerned that my vocation was calling me more toward being a diocesan priest, he recalled. I needed to be active in the community, dealing with people, dealing with their problems on a regular basis and sharing whatever talents I had. BOARD MEMBER, MCINTYRE HOUSE RECOVERY CENTER Returning to Los Angeles, he began to doubt himself until he spoke with Grace McGeehy, a member of his parish council. She asked about his plans, and he told her he was considering applying to St. John s Seminary at Camarillo. MEMBER, LOS ANGELES ARCHDIOCESAN CLERGY PERSONNEL BOARD ( , ) I knew immediately, then and there, that is exactly what I m supposed to do, said Father Frank. All the apprehension, all the absurdity, all the self-doubt, all that just seemed to evaporate. I applied, and the rest is history. I ve never looked back. Many years later, he discovered McGeehy s prayer life was dedicated to praying for vocations. >>> Board Member and Vice President, FedOne Federal Credit Union KNIGHT OF THE HOLY SEPULCHER OF JERUSALEM 7

10 COVER FEATURE Among Father Frank s favorite roles is that of director of the Cardinal McIntyre Fund for Charity, which raises money for basic needs of the poor food, electricity, heat, burying the dead. It doesn t matter if you re a parishioner. My idea is, Jesus Christ wouldn t have said, You don t come to my church. I don t think so! We cover everyone we possibly can, he said. Father Frank calls his priestly calling the ultimate in his life s journey. His parish, St. Basil s in Los Angeles, has more than 5,500 families. POURING HIS ENERGY INTO HIS MINISTRY Father Frank was ordained in 2000 and assigned to Holy Trinity Parish in San Pedro. He quickly accepted many assignments within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, which is by far the largest archdiocese in the U.S. with more than 5 million Catholics. Because of his law enforcement background, Father Frank was asked by the archdiocese to become chaplain for the Los Angeles police shortly after his ordination. It s an aspect of his ministry that enables him to give back to officers who put their lives on the line. My role is to walk with them, to advise them when they want to be advised, to lift them up, to pray for them, he said. Any time they have a rally for a fallen officer, I do the invocation and then I ride with them. They appreciate it, and you get a much closer relationship. It helps develop a rapport and enhances my ministry to them. Life is more fulfilling now, and he calls his ministry the ultimate. As pastor of St. Basil Catholic Church in Los Angeles, Father Frank ministers to 5,500 families a culturally rich and diverse group of Filipinos, Koreans, and Central American Hispanics. Baptisms, marriages, and Masses are said in Spanish, Korean, and English, and it s a community centered on outreach. It s not unusual to have 45 adult baptisms at once, and the record is 125. He also ministers to priests throughout the archdiocese who have substance abuse issues. He conducts AA meetings and helps them through the transition he has made. I get up in the morning and dress in my clerics, and that s it for the day that s my uniform, and that s who I am, he said. I am a 24/7 Catholic priest working in my parish, and by extension, outside my parish. I just gave my 87th unit of blood platelets at City of Hope [a cancer research hospital]. Every time I go, I go with Roman collar on and they know who and what I am. We get enough bad publicity; people should see there are those of us out there doing the best we can. He also continues his decades-long association with the Victor McAllen Motorcycle Stunt and Drill Team, which raises money for charity. He is now the chaplain and performs with other members on occasion. Father Frank s lifelong dedication to giving back is also demonstrated by his generosity to PC. The Lord has been very good to me financially, he said, so he has established a scholarship in his parents name and included the College in his estate plan. He credits PC with giving him a logical, philosophical foundation and analytical skills that were not only helpful in his career, but in his life choices. Providence College, he said, gave me the ability to listen, to be true to what I was being exposed to and not turn away from it, but embrace it and find out exactly where I was called to be. Diane M. Sterrett of Tiverton, R.I., is a senior contributor for Providence College Magazine. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE I FALL 2012

13 THE PROVIDENCE COLLEGE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS BEGAN THE ACADEMIC YEAR WITH ITS LONG-SOUGHT INTERNATIONAL ACCREDITATION IN PLACE AND A NEW DEAN DEDICATED TO ADVANCING ITS PROGRESS. AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, awarded the business school accreditation following a meticulous internal review and evaluation accomplished by faculty and administrators. The distinction, considered the gold standard for college business programs, is held by only 30 percent of all business schools in the United States and 5 percent worldwide. It was an achievement for all involved, especially the business school faculty who worked toward it for more than eight years. 18 percent of business schools in the United States were headed by women last year, according to the AACSB. Maxfield is joined at the administrative level by Dr. Christine E. Earley, professor of accountancy, who this year will be interim associate dean for faculty and curriculum. The school which is comprised of the undergraduate disciplines in accountancy, finance, management, and marketing, and the graduate-level MBA Program also plans to add an assistant dean for student affairs and impact assessment. AACSB accreditation involved a significant commitment from School of Business faculty, particularly during the last five years, said Dr. Patrick T. Kelly, associate professor of accountancy, department chair, and former interim dean of the business school. Every faculty member was involved in the process, which included service on one or more accreditation-related committees, assessment of student learning, and evaluation of our program. The new dean, Dr. Sylvia Maxfield, professor of management, brings a background in both business and higher education. She is a former senior sovereign analyst and vice president at Lehman Brothers and former director of the MBA and Principled Leadership programs at Simmons College. Maxfield holds an elite rank herself only GREAT EXPECTATIONS Maxfield has a really good vision of what she wants to do, said William F. Markey, Jr. 62, chair of the Business Advisory Council, a group of 50 alumni and business leaders who serve as a resource for the business school. She s going to move forward quickly. Dean Maxfield would love to raise the bar and to really be looked at as a top-tier business school with a very solid reputation. One of Maxfield s first goals is to secure the business school a home. A committee of faculty and staff has developed a plan to convert Dore Hall, a residence hall, into a business school. >>> MILESTONES IN THE ACCREDITATION JOURNEY Group of alumni proposes that Providence College pursue accreditation of its business programs by AACSB International. Board of Trustees establishes Division of Business Administration with Dr. Francine Newth, associate professor of management, as director. School of Business is established; Newth is acting dean. Dr. Sue Lehrman appointed first dean of business school. 11

14 DEAN MAXFIELD WOULD LOVE TO RAISE THE BAR AND TO REALLY BE LOOKED AT AS A TOP-TIER BUSINESS SCHOOL WITH A VERY SOLID REPUTATION. WILLIAM F. MARKEY, JR. 62, BUSINESS ADVISORY COUNCIL CHAIR The minute we get a lead gift, we re ready to go, said Maxfield. It s a wonderful opportunity for a friend of the College to be associated with a business school that over the next five years will be increasingly noted for being unique and creative in integrating the humanities and liberal arts with business education. Maxfield also is leading the nationwide search for a professor who will be the first to hold the Michael A. Ruane Endowed Chair for Innovation in Business Education. Michael A. Ruane 71, chair of the Board of Trustees, donated $2 million to establish the chair. It will be held by a passionate and dedicated teacher at the full- or associate-professor level who will work collaboratively to support teaching innovation by everyone on the faculty and support learning outcomes, Maxfield said. The College s new Core Curriculum, which took effect this fall, is an opportunity for the PCSB to further integrate the liberal arts and business, she said. Our goal is to have as great a number of students studying as many subjects as possible. We want to build more organic connections to the humanities and the liberal arts, said Maxfield. She noted that the revised Development of Western Civilization Program calls for students in the final sequence to consider a contemporary issue and how to apply classical thought to its resolution. (CONTINUED) Dr. Sylvia Maxfield I m very hopeful we will be able to have up to 25 percent of our School of Business faculty teaching jointly with humanities faculty in those colloquia, Maxfield said. Maxfield said she wants to make sure that business students have the opportunity to study abroad because international travel is an important part of the College s education. She also sees an opportunity to highlight the business school s growing visibility in the area of ethical leadership and social responsibility in finance and accounting. Susan M. Esper 91, a member of the Business Advisory Council, said Maxfield has an extraordinary vision for the business school. To bring together two great things the Dominican tradition and a liberal arts education and to be among the very elite group of business schools in the country, you are going to have the best and brightest leaders coming out of campus, said Esper. Business Advisory Council, a group of alumni and business leaders, forms to advise faculty, raise funds, mentor students. Dr. MaryJane Lenon, associate professor of economics, named interim dean, guiding accreditation process through a critical phase. AACSB team visits PC and evaluates business curriculum, faculty qualifications and scholarship, the M.B.A. Program, and learning assessments. Dr. Sylvia Maxfield appointed dean.

15 SCHOOL OF BUSINESS The decade-long process to achieve accreditation brought its own benefits to the School of Business. Among them: 1. FORMATION OF A BUSINESS ADVISORY COUNCIL. FIFTY BUSINESS LEADERS, MANY OF THEM ALUMNI, SERVE ON THE COUNCIL, FORMED IN THEY SUPPORT THE BUSI- NESS SCHOOL FINANCIALLY, SPEAK ON CAMPUS, MENTOR STUDENTS, AND HIRE RECENT GRADUATES. 3. A common core curriculum. Whether majoring in accountancy, finance, management, or marketing, students graduate with a background in each business discipline, with additional instruction in ethics. 4. More faculty. The number of faculty also increased between 2004 and 2012, from 35 to A STRENGTHENED MBA PROGRAM. FORMERLY TAUGHT THROUGH THE GRADUATE SCHOOL, THE MBA PROGRAM BECAME PART OF THE PCSB IN 2007 AND OFFERS INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION TO CANDI- DATES BEGINNING WITH THE APPLICATION PROCESS. 2. More students studying business. Between spring 2004 and spring 2012, the number of students majoring in business increased by 20 percent, from 864 to 1,080 students. 6. BETTER EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT. BUSINESS FACULTY DEVELOPED NEW PROCEDURES TO TRACK STUDENT PROGRESS AND PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS. 13

16 By VICKI-ANN DOWNING ALUMNI HAVE ALWAYS SUPPORTED BUSINESS PROGRAMS AT PROVIDENCE COLLEGE. THEY RETURN TO CAMPUS TO SPEAK AND MENTOR STUDENTS, THEY HIRE GRADUATES AND OFFER INTERNSHIPS, AND THEY SERVE ON THE BUSINESS ADVISORY COUNCIL. In 2000, a push from alumni set the College on a course to establish a separate business school and to gain accreditation by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Kenneth G. Kraetzer 79 realized the benefits of accreditation while studying for an M.B.A. at Iona College, which was in the process of attaining it. Kraetzer knew the distinction would benefit PC, too. You can t be a big-league college without it, said Kraetzer. It went from being a nice thing to a necessity. In those days, all of PC s undergraduate business departments accountancy, finance, management, and marketing operated independently, overseen by a vice president for academic administration, Dr. Thomas L. Canavan. To achieve accreditation would require reorganization and a yearslong commitment from faculty, staff, and administrators. To gain support for his accreditation proposal, Kraetzer enlisted the help of alumni on the Board of Trustees, including Alfred A. Lamy 53. Both were members of the New York Club of the National Alumni Association. Lamy arranged for them to travel to Providence and make their pitch to Canavan. Canavan, while supportive, cautioned that the process would take many years. He needed the endorsement of then-college President Rev. Philip A. Smith, O.P. 63 and the commitment of faculty, who ultimately would be responsible for the effort. But Kraetzer, who gathered a dozen alumni on a committee to garner support for the idea, was persistent. Ken, when he gets on a mission, is one of those people who is kind of like a dog on a bone, said E. James Mulcahy 66, chairman of the College s National Board of Overseers. He is very loyal to the College, very cognizant of what it needs, just a smart guy. He did whatever he could to push it. Ken wanted to do it, but he didn t know how to do it, said Lamy. He didn t have the contacts. Since he knew me well from being on the New York Club, he asked me to help him. Canavan was the third person in the car. He was the implementation part of it. In 2003, the business faculty voted to pursue accreditation. In 2004, after the four business disciplines were organized under a Division of Business Administration, Dr. Hugh F. Lena, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, began overseeing the process. In 2007, with Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. 80 as president, the College established the School of Business with its first full-time dean. Last July, when accreditation was awarded, Dr. Patrick T. Kelly, associate professor of accountancy and then interim dean of the business school, reported an outpouring of congratulations from alumni. It validates who we are and what we are, said trustee Kevin C. Phelan 66, a member of the Business Advisory Council who was involved in the early effort. It moves us into a league that we believe we should be in and are now in, as validated by our peers. As a trustee, as an alum, as a business school alum, I m very pleased.

17 ST. DOMINIC WEEKEND By CHARLES C. JOYCE St. Dominic Evening of Appreciation keynote speaker Matt Weber 06 drew a standing ovation with his remarks on Catholicism and the College s influence in his life. 15

18 ST. DOMINIC WEEKEND ON A WEEKEND FILLED WITH PROGRAMMING AND MESSAGES OF GRATITUDE AND THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF A MULTI-MILLION-DOLLAR BEQUEST, PROVIDENCE COLLEGE HELD ITS TRUMP CARD UNTIL THE CLOSING ACT RISING CATHOLIC MEDIA STAR MATT WEBER 06, WHO EMPHATICALLY PROVED IT S OK TO RETURN HOME. Weber s comedic, but stirring, affirmation of Catholicism warranted a standing ovation at the St. Dominic Evening of Appreciation that capped a record-setting St. Dominic Weekend on October The two days of events, programs, and receptions drew more benefactors and guests more than 500 attended than ever in the weekend s four-year history. St. Dominic Weekend honors the College s leading benefactors in the St. Dominic Society (annual giving), the Harkins Society (planned giving), and the 1917 Society (lifetime giving). This year s theme, Your Leadership. Your Impact., celebrated how generosity has transformed the learning experience for students and impacted the lives of the entire College community. Your leadership giving impact has made Providence College a great place, College President Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. 80 told guests. This weekend is a tremendous blessing. From all of the Dominicans here, you are a blessing and a prayer to us, he added. The Evening of Appreciation, held at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, featured these highlights: Father Shanley announced a bequest of approximately $6.5 million from the estate of the late Robert H. Walsh 39 & 66Hon. The gift will endow the College s first academic chair in the sciences and add millions of dollars to a scholarship fund and an academic fund in chemistry and the biological sciences. (See story on pages ) A seven-minute video conveyed testimonies of gratitude and the tangible impacts of philanthropy from students, faculty members, and administrators. Nine of 16 new members were inducted into the 1917 Society, and four 1917 Society members were acknowledged for advancing from the Bronze Torchbearer to Silver Torchbearer status, signifying lifetime giving of at least $500,000. Harkins Society members including 17 who are new to the society this year were recognized for including PC in their estate plans. Top: Giovanni Esposito 14, a Robert H.

19 SHOW-STOPPING PERFORMANCE Introduced by Father Shanley as a gifted communicator, Weber was an American studies major and a film minor at PC. He has since earned two master s degrees, including one from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where he serves as new and social media officer. Weber hosts and produces the school s education podcast, The Harvard EdCast; hosts A Word with Weber on CatholicTV; and recently wrote his first book, Fearing the Stigmata (Loyola Press, 2012), a series of entertaining essays on Catholicism. Weber took guests on a rollicking story-telling ride about his journey from PC to Harvard, where he found out early in his graduate classes that his proud Catholic faith didn t fit into the intellectualism. While he said there was only curiosity behind the motives of fellow students, they frequently questioned him about his faith. He reeled off five examples of his peers questions to the bemused audience, including, If you have a sore throat, do you gargle holy water? Weber admitted he had never been questioned about his religion during his adult life. It made him think, at age 26, how he could answer questions on Catholicism for young adults and perhaps lead a new perspective on young Catholic imagination. With CatholicTV, the national cable channel, just a few miles from Harvard, he reached out to the president and general manager. On his first interview, he showed them a two-minute video on why he stops at a statue of Mary when riding his bike home. The video was funny, faith filled, and educative, he said. The executives, one misty eyed, were overwhelmed and requested more. Weber now has made nearly 90 segments that anchor CatholicTV s Clearvoice newsmagazine show, and his essays appear weekly on A Word with Weber. Furthermore, a representative of Loyola Press called him, leading to an offer and the publishing of Fearing the Stigmata. Weber s foray into Catholic media is a rare gift reminiscent of experiencing the gift of Providence College, he said. At my core, I have learned from this Order of Preachers how to preach, how to teach, and how to inspire through story to believe in simply that which is good and that which is true. Boy, I was lucky to find this place, added Weber.... Here, among all of you, I must say it s good to be home. Weber s foray into Catholic media is a rare gift reminiscent of experiencing the gift of Providence College.... At my core, I have learned from this Order of Preachers.
