Welcome Parish Named For Newest Saint!

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish (Limerick, Montgomery County, PA.) will change its name to Saint Teresa of Calcutta Parish in advance of her upcoming canonization at the beginning of September.

A special Mass will commemorate the name change followed by the unveiling of a new sign on the side of the parish education center.

A tenth anniversary celebration of the parish will follow.

Pope Francis will declare Blessed Teresa of Calcutta a saint on September 4th at the Vatican. 
Shortly after she died in 1997, Pope John Paul II waived the usual five year waiting period and allowed the opening of the process to declare her a saint.  
She was beatified in 2003.
