Sister Kathleen Atkinson Receives 2014 Caritas Award from Catholic Charities North Dakota
Congratulations to Sister Kathleen Atkinson, the 2014 Caritas Award recipient. On October 8, guests gathered in Fargo for the Catholic Charities North Dakota annual luncheon where the award was presented to Sister Kathleen Atkinson.
Sister Kathleen is the founder of Ministry on the Margins, a ministry formed to support those who fall through the cracks during difficult times of transition, on the margins of life - particularly those re-entering the community from prison and those who are homeless. The organization recently opened food banks in downtown Bismarck and Wilton, and donated to the Fort Yates Food Bank in order to keep it open to the people in need.
The Caritas award recognizes those who exemplify faith, hope and love to the least of God's people.
Thank you to Sister Kathleen and the many volunteers who commit themselves every week to meeting the needs of the people, where they are, with compassion, love, respect and hospitality.
