Missionary of Charity

Long before she received the Nobel Peace prize and won the hearts of the world, Mother Teresa of Calcutta had a personal connection to Central Illinois.  The women of the diocese of Peoria pulled their dimes together and bought Mother one of her first trucks to serve in the slums of Calcutta.  In 1991, Mother Teresa established a convent of her Missionaries of Charity on the cathedral campus.  Over the years the sisters have ministered in many ways to the poorest of the poor in our community.  Today they coordinate the Cathedral CCD program and other ministries to our families.  All are welcomed to join the sisters in their convent for 7am Mass Monday-Friday.
