Lead image Missionaries of Charity in Indianapolis carry on legacy of St. Teresa of Calcutta

When Archbishop Charles C. Thompson celebrated Mass on Sept. 21 for four sisters of the Missionaries of Charity who minister in Indianapolis, he told them in his homily that he was “preaching to the choir.” That’s because the Missionaries of Charity, the religious order of more than 5,000 sisters founded by St. Teresa of Calcutta, are known around the world for their total dedication to serving the poorest of the poor solely out of their love for God.
