Today: Canonization of Mother Teresa, JCU Honorary Degree Recipient, 1978

On September 4 the Roman Catholic Church will formally canonize St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa). John Carroll will pray in thanksgiving this Sunday at our 9 p.m. Mass. As many alumni and long-time faculty and staff will remember, Mother Teresa was a recipient of an honorary Doctorate of Humane Service from John Carroll University on Monday, April 24, 1978. In characteristic fashion, she accepted the honorary degree “in the name of the poor.”  For more information, including pictures and a copy of her remarks, visit site.jcu.edu/mission.
