Faithfulness

As we gear up to celebrate the canonization of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, let us be faithful to Christ’s call to serve others. Mother Teresa is renowned for her service to the poor and the most vulnerable in society. She answered Christ’s call to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless and visit the infirmed (Matt 25: 35-40).

Mother Teresa was an embodiment of Christ’s love and compassion — His hands and feet.

Here at Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington (CCDA), we are continually inspired by the life of Mother Teresa and strive to reflect her deep love of those on the margins of society.

CCDA extends its services and resources to all in need; convenes the Catholic community to fulfill the Church’s mission of social justice; and advocates for social justice and seeks to empower others to do the same.

We invite you to join us in this mission.

Mother Teresa, pray for us.
