We remember her in the month of September. Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was born of Albanian parents in Skopje in 1910, when she entered the Loreto convent in Ireland she took the name Teresa from Theresa of Lisieux at the age of 18. The nuns sent her to their convent to serve the poorest people in Calcutta. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. The nuns who continue her work are known as the Sisters of Charity. Teresa was beatified by the Roman Catholic Church in 2003, but has not yet been canonized, so she has no day of remembrance.
