A chance to venerate the relics of a remarkable modern day Blessed on her way to Sainthood. An exhibit of Mother Teresa of Calcutta's relics will be open to the public today (Friday July 9th) and Saturday July 10th.
They are here for the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Missionaries of Charity in the Archdiocese of Toronto. The first and second class relics include personal effects that would have been presented to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints when her case for Beatification was brought forth.
The relics will be on display for veneration at the Missionaries' convent at 185 Dunn Avenue on Friday from 8am to 5pm. They will then be taken to St. Barnabas Parish in Scarborough, Ontario for Mass at 7pm.
On Saturday, the relics will be on display at the Holy Family Parish at 1372 King Street West in Toronto, Ontario. The Thanksgiving Mass for the Missionaries of Charity also takes place here at 10 am.
