OUR LADY, Queen of Peace held a memorial statue dedication to St. (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta, who is now a
part of the church located in La Marque.
The bronze statue was donated by Mary Ellen and Charles T. Doyle of First Texas Bank, completing a process that
was capped off by Monday’s ceremony. Although it rained for much of the day, the
clouds broke and offered a glimpse of the sun as the parishioners went outside.
“God put it in her heart to become the inspiration that she became,” said Father
Chacko Puthumayli.
The founder of Missionaries of Charity, Mother Teresa served the poor throughout
the world until her death in September 1997, by which time she had opened more
than 500 missions in over 100 countries. She received the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize
and was canonized in September 2016.
“This is a real privilege to do something like this,” said Doyle. “It’s amazing that she
lived in our lifetime. She set such an example for the world.”
Getting the statue in perfect position was a team effort.
Teresa and R.O. Hernandez of R.O. Hernandez Concrete provided the border and
sidewalk, while Therese Rochner of Jimbo’s Nursery assisted with the landscaping,
while Jim T. Cortinas led the process of installing the statue.
The Houston area chapter of the Missionaries of Charity Sisters also attended the
event and shared their experiences of working with Mother Teresa.
This past Thursday marked one year since Mother Teresa was named co-patron of
the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Calcutta, alongside St. Francis Xavier.
“We are so happy to be able to donate this,” said Doyle. “This statute recognizes
her, the way she set an example for us and for us to take care of the poor and suffering
among us.”
