Why Saint Teresa of Calcutta?
Mother Teresa of Calcutta, now St. Teresa of Calcutta, provides a perfect example for how we must pursue our own mission here at Catholic Charities. She constantly insisted that “everything begins with prayer.” Ultimately, it was her prayer that strengthened her to love like God and to serve like Christ as she tirelessly served the poorest of the poor. She is the perfect model for us!
What do members do?
Members are asked to pray for Catholic Charities and those we serve on a daily basis. New members will receive a prayer card to guide them in their daily prayer, along with a St. Teresa necklace medallion, which will serve as a reminder of their commitment to the society.
General intentions will be emailed to Society members once each month, and specific intentions will be emailed as necessary throughout the year. Catholic Charities will accept members’ prayer intentions and offer them during our weekly Mass in our chapel. They will remain near the tabernacle for several days after having been presented.
October: Words of Love
In our globalized world, there are countless ways to communicate. Young people especially are aware of how to keep in touch with family, friends, teachers, employers, and whomever they may know or want to know.
During her lifetime, St. Teresa of Calcutta had only pen, paper, and her beliefs about the value and power of words.
The communication staff at Catholic Charities Denver joyfully and conscientiously spreads the Good News using social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube. Our webpage hosts news briefings, video productions, and the opportunities for volunteers, benefactors, and prayer advocates to offer their support. We proclaim the Good News so our clients are able to love and be loved.
St. Teresa of Calcutta,
Through the power of your words and pen you proclaimed the Good News to the people you served. Direct and guide Catholic Charities and us to make known the same message in who we are, what we do, and how we communicate. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
