Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa was born in Macedonia on the 26th August 1910. She considered the 27th August 1910, the day she was baptised, her “true birthday”. She lived most of her life in India and founded the ‘Missionaries of Charity’. Mother Teresa was widely admired by many for her charitable works. Her feast day is the 5th September. By 1996, she was operating 517 missions in more than 100 countries. Over the years, Mother Teresa’s ‘Missionaries of Charity’ grew from 12 to thousands, serving in 450 centres around the world. She went on to open a hospice for the poor, a home for sufferers of leprosy and a home for orphans and homeless youths. She died on the 5th September 1997.
