Ministry on the Margins is a volunteer-based ecumenical ministry committed to supporting those who fall through the cracks during times of transition. Every week we offer hospitality and coffee, a food pantry, prison-to-society support, an ecumenical Christian worship service, and many other ministries.

MOTM was founded in 2013 by Sister Kathleen Atkinson, OSB, a sister of Annunciation Monastery in Bismarck.  She was helped by many compassionate individuals, churches, and organizations. MOTM now operates under the guidance of the Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery.
