Blessed Mother Teresa parish to host namesake's relics

The relics, crucifix, rosary and sandals of Mother Teresa will be on display at the Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta Parish in Dorchester Friday, June 18th. The church welcomes the public to visit Friday for the veneration of these items.

“Mother Teresa continues to inspire millions of faithful Catholics around the world,” said Right Rev. Jack Ahern, pastor of Blessed Mother Teresa. “Her presence is felt as much today as it was in life in the many good works of charity we see exhibited here in the Archdiocese and throughout the universal Church. The parishioners are honored that the Sisters of Charity have helped to bring these very important items from Mother Teresa to our Church so that the Catholic community can pray to her that her contributions to our people will continued to be shared forever.”

The veneration, which is being organized by the Missionary Sisters of Charity, will be open to public from 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Mass, celebrated by Father Ahern, will follow at 5 p.m.
