Mother Teresa Scholars

“Holiness is not the luxury of the few. It is a simple duty for you and for me.”

– Mother Teresa

Students can immerse themselves in the spirituality and life of Mother Teresa by enrolling in the “Mother Teresa Scholar Program”. This coordinated program of study and service is designed to help students understand the interior life of Mother Teresa therefore better allow them to follow in her footsteps.

Intellectual study, guided by professors and guest speakers, allows students to discover the theological foundations at the root of Mother’s life and work. Retreats and prayer initiatives give students the opportunity to encounter Jesus in the Eucharist. Service and mission requirements help students develop a lifestyle of service to Jesus in the distressing disguise of the poorest of the poor.

Upon graduation, “Mother Teresa Scholars” have the tools to become agents of change in our culture, reaching to the peripheries of our society and participating in the New Evangelization of the 21st Century.
