On Tuesday, Mother Teresa High School hosted an open air mass to celebrate the Catholic Church’s canonization of Mother Teresa. Students, staff, and special guests gathered in the back courtyard for the celebration, which was presided over by Archbishop Terence Prendergast. Opening remarks were made by Mother Teresa Principal Gerard Stephenson, OCSB Chairperson Elaine McMahon, and Director of Education Denise Andre. The school also presented Elaine McMahon with a framed picture of Mother Teresa to commemorate the special day. After the mass, a special reflection was read by the head of Mother Teresa’s English Department Mrs. Jennifer Simpson, followed by doves being released. It was a truly beautiful and moving ceremony.
