Our 2016 Catholic Charities North Dakota Caritas Award recipients were Deacon James & Henrietta Nistler and it is with heavy hearts that we learned Henrietta passed away January 2, 2018. We were very blessed to get to know and meet her and they have continued to support other Caritas Award winners. Deacon James and Henrietta were honored for their work with the Bismarck Diocesan African Mission where they ministered to countless people during their time in East Africa.
The Caritas Award is given annually to persons or organizations in recognition of outstanding service and love for humanity. The purpose of the Caritas Award is to recognize the individual or organization who has, by example and deed, served persons in need and advocated for justice and convened other persons of good will to do the same in a manner consistent with Catholic Social Teaching.
