Carriers of God’s love

“WHATSOEVER YOU DO TO THE LEAST OF MY

BRETHREN YOU DID IT TO ME.” (Mt 25:35-40)

 

OUR OBJECTIVE

The Missionaries of Charity Sisters (Mother Teresa’s Sisters or the Sisters of Mother Teresa, as many call us) is a religious community in the Catholic Church, founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta (now St. Teresa of Calcutta) in 1950 in Calcutta, India. Our community is totally dedicated to the service of the poorest of the poor, irrespective of social class, creed or colour. We deliberately choose to show God’s concern for the poorest and the lowliest, remaining right on the ground, while offering immediate and effective service to those in need, until they can find someone who can help them in a better and more lasting way.
