Mother Teresa becomes Saint Teresa

Medical Mission Sisters share the joy of a new saint, Mother Teresa of Calcutta!  Our Community has a special relationship with Mother Teresa, as she came to us before founding her Missionaries of Charity to learn how to care for those who were sick and dying.  Several of our Sisters at Holy Family Hospital, Patna, India, were her teachers in the late 1940s.  Although she and Mother Anna Dengel, our Founder, never worked together, they held great respect for the unique call and mission of each other’s Community.
