Many Minnesotans are probably not aware that the Missionaries of Charity, the order founded by Mother Teresa, has a house in South Minneapolis, not far from downtown. They exercise their mission among the poor and homeless of our community and are often seen in attendance at archdiocesan events.
This coming Saturday, September 5, is the Feast Day of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who died on that date in 1997 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II on October 19, 2003.
In honor of Mother's feast day, and in commemoration of her 99th birthday (she was born on August 26, 1910), the local Missionaries of Charity are having a special Mass said at the parish of St. Stephen, 2211 Clinton Avenue South, Minneapolis. Auxiliary Bishop Lee Piche' of the Archdiocese will be the celebrant. The Mass will be bilingual in English and Spanish. It will begin at 10:00 a.m.
All are invited to attend.
St. Stephen's is located two blocks south of Franklin Avenue, between Nicollet Avenue and the 35W overpass.
Please invite your friends and neighbors.
