CSS holds Annual Meeting
On October 22, Catholic Social Services held its Annual Gathering in Rapid City. This year the Founder’s Award went to Bishop Steven Biegler, Diocese of Cheyenne. He was also the keynote speaker for the event. The award is in memory of Msgr. William O’Connell, who was a longtime friend and mentor to Bishop Steven. The Order of St. Benedict recipients were Ron and Paula Clark, Jim and Elubia Gilbert, and Lisa Wesolick. Those awards go to people who exemplify the spirit of ministry carried out by the Sisters of St. Benedict at St. Martin Monastery, Rapid City. At the Annual Gathering, Executive Director of CSS, Jim Kinyon, presented a report on the number of services the organization conducts as well as an update on the financial status.
