We Need Your Help

mt-statueIn order to continue and expand the beautiful work of education, service, formation and evangelization, the Mother Teresa Project needs your help. Consider a call to give to this unique project, which follows the spirituality and legacy of the “Saint of the Gutters”, Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

When you give $500 or more, you will receive a hand-painted devotional statue of Mother as a token of our gratitude. American born sculptor, Julie London, crafted this beautiful 6″ representation of Mother Teresa out of clay in 1994. From the casting, fettling, to painting, London’s co-worker, Merna Chance, produced limited edition replicas of this work titled, “Remember the Poor”. It is produced by permission of the Missionaries of Charity.

Other Projects

The Mother Teresa Project at Ave Maria University also hosts an annual conference hosted by the, which explores issues at the heart of human flourishing. The 2017 Conference, “Welcoming the Child: Mother Teresa’s Care for the Most Vulnerable“, focuses on adoption and foster care.

We are building a permanent home. The museum needs a new site to welcome the growing number of pilgrims, and a center of formation is needed to accommodate the numerous students committed to spiritual growth.
