The late Mother Teresa will be honored during a special Mass at Marquette University. It will celebrate her canonization as a saint, to be conducted Sunday outside the Vatican by Pope Francis.
The Milwaukee service begins at noon Wednesday outside of Marquette’s Schroeder Complex. Reverend Thomas Krettek, Marquette’s vice president of mission and ministry, will preside along with the Reverend John Burns of the Milwaukee Catholic Archdiocese.
Mother Teresa visited Milwaukee in 1981 when Marquette gave her its highest honor, the Pere Marquette Discovery Award. She died in 1997.
