Journey Into The World of St. Teresa - A Catholic Charities Celebration
This fall, Catholic Charities invites you to a special evening with Linda Schaefer, our guest speaker for the evening of October 13th. She is the last photojournalist to be given permission, by Mother Teresa of Calcutta herself, to photograph the work of the Missionaries of Charity and witness Mother Teresa’s legacy. In addition to her personal journey with Mother Teresa, Linda attended her beautification in 2003 and her canonization at the Vatican on September 4, 2016.
Linda will take you on a pictorial and video journey of the life and work of Mother Teresa, a woman who believed in the dignity of the human condition, no matter the circumstances.Together, they visited the bedsides of extremely sick and dying patients, many afflicted with leprosy. Linda was moved to tears when she saw how well hundreds of men and women were treated and cared for, within the home Mother Teresa founded.
Much Like the mission of Catholic Charities ministries, in the words of Saint Teresa of Calcutta: “The work will continue because this is not my work, it is God’s work.”
Bishop Daniel E. Thomas will share recollections of the personal time he spent with Mother Teresa and his reflections on her life’s work, the Jubilee Year of Mercy, and the work of Catholic Charities. Bishop Thomas endorses and promotes Catholic Charities’ mission of serving the poor, speaking for and assisting the neglected and forgotten, promoting life from beginning to end, and nurturing and supporting individuals and families.
Please join us, with your family and friends, for a wonderful evening of enlightened fellowship, as we come together to share our mission with others and make a difference in our community.
