After 10 years, in preparation for the canonization of Mother Teresa in Rome this September, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish in Limerick will change its name to St. Teresa of Calcutta beginning Saturday, July 16.
A special Mass will be celebrated at 5 p.m. followed immediately by the unveiling of the new sign on the side of the parish education center. A parish 10th anniversary celebration including refreshments will follow.
Blessed Teresa Parish, located at 256 Swamp Pike in Limerick Township, Montgomery County, is led by the pastor, Father Paul Brandt, and hosts more than 3,000 families, 25 ministries and parish religious education for more than 700 students.
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Education Center serves more than 400 children from six weeks old to eighth grade. Anita Dixon is principal and Jackie Stiles is child care director of the school that is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
