It’s been 8 years since Mother Teresa was canonized a Saint. Most of us know her for her joy, holiness, gratitude, and service to the poorest of poor. Did you also know of her undying love to children and family? This year, the school will be celebrating her selfless works of charity through our twist on a Calcutta ball.
“The child is the beauty of God present in the world, that greatest gift to a family.”
– Mother Teresa
