Sister Beth Davies, CND, to receive Ketteler Award for Social Justice

At the Annual Assembly of the Sisters of Divine Providence, Beth Davies, CND, will be presented with the 2015 Ketteler Award for Social Justice.

We recognize Sister Beth for her advocacy and activism on behalf of the impoverished, addicted and exploited in Southwest Virginia — the heart of Appalachia. Serving a region in despair and advocating for the people who are too often forgotten, Sister Beth’s ministry reflects Bishop’s Ketteler’s energetic work for justice.

In 1998, the Sisters of Divine Providence instituted the Ketteler Award to honor individuals who demonstrate a strong commitment to social justice. The award, named for Wilhelm Emmanuel von Ketteler, Bishop of Mainz, Germany, and founder of the Congregation, is presented annually.
