About This Event

Seven years ago, S. Kathleen Atkinson did something that she had often thought about doing but had never pursued. She picked up the phone, called the chaplain of the North Dakota State Penitentiary and asked if there was anything she could do as a volunteer at the prison. That phone call began a journey that has changed her life and set in motion Ministry on the Margins, a volunteer-based ecumenical ministry committed to supporting those who fall through the cracks during times of transition. Now serving over 800 people a week with an average of 90 weekly volunteers, Ministry on the Margins was formed by people who come together believing in miracles—that Jesus who once was dead is now alive and present among us. They believe that ordinary miracles happen.

Come hear S. Kathleen’s story about Ministry on the Margins and how practical Benedictine values have led the way. Allow yourself to listen for your own unique desire to become a changemaker. Imagine what social engagement is possible within your own settings when you are tuned in to hope and resurrection.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
