VENERATION OF THE RELICS OF BLESSED TERESA OF CALCUTTA ON DISPLAY AT ST. AUGUSTINE CHURCH IN NEWARK, NEW JERSEY.

The 100th anniversary of the birth of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta will take place on August 26th. The Sisters of the Missionaries of Charity in Newark will begin a centennial celebration on Saturday, June 26th.

All are invited to visit St. Augustine Church, 170 Sussex Avenue in Newark for the veneration of relics of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 26. Relics belonging to Mother Teresa, including her crucifix, Rosary and sandals will be displayed. Holy Mass will be celebrated at 4:00 p.m.

Following a calling to work among the poorest of the poor, Mother Teresa began working with the poor in the slums of Calcutta. She founded the order of the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta in 1950. Today, the order now has more than 4,500 sisters, as well as priests and brothers, and is active around the world. Mother Teresa died at the motherhouse in Calcutta on September 5, 1997. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II on October 19, 2003.

I was just at St. Augustine Church in Newark, New Jersey. The sisters were wonderful to work with. After working with them, honestly I understand Mother Teresa's devotion.
