Knights of Columbus Council #15456 of St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish, Limerick, recently installed a statue of the Blessed Mother in Arcadia Senior Living Facility.
The statue is believed to be almost 100 years old and originally was featured in St. Peter Church in Pottstown, which merged with St. Clare’s in Linfield to become (Blessed) St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish in 2006. The statue had been used at St. Teresa’s during the parish’s development but had been in storage for nine years.
St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish provides pastoral care for the Arcadia at Limerick Pointe community. The Knights of Columbus knew how important this statue of the Blessed Mother would be for the Arcadia community and they were very grateful to place it in a beautiful niche outside of the facility’s chapel.
