The Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven became a postal depot Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010 when the U.S. Postal Service conducted a special stamp cancellation ceremony featuring the new 44-cent postage stamp of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mother Teresa’s birth date (Aug. 26, 1910), the Knights of Columbus Museum has been hosting a historical exhibition, entitled Mother Teresa: Life, Spirituality and Message, which is open to the public daily.
Mother Teresa, the diminutive nun who ministered daily to the abandoned and dying in the slums of Kolkata, also had the attention and admiration of aristocrats and world leaders. She amazed and inspired countless people across the globe by her simple, humble lifestyle and her unbridled compassion for the poorest of the poor.
The Knights of Columbus Museum observed the 100th anniversary of Mother Teresa’s birth on Aug. 26. The day’s activities included a birthday celebration, the unveiling of the new USPS postage stamp (to be released Sept. 5) memorializing Mother Teresa, and a presentation and book signing by writer and speaker Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, author of Mother Teresa and Me: Ten Years of Friendship.
The Knights of Columbus Museum is also featuring an exhibit, Mother Teresa: Life, Spirituality and Message, to honor the memory of this holy nun on the path to sainthood. Join the Knights in celebrating her life and contributions to the welfare of so many, at the Knights of Columbus Museum.
