About Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, in Skopje, the capital of Macedonia on 26 August 1910. She left her birth city at the age of 18 years old to join the Institute of Blessed Virgin Mary in Ireland, which is popularly known as Sisters of Loreto. She then received the name Sister Mary Teresa. In 1929, about six months of training in Dublin, she went to India. She took her initial vows as a nun in 1931.
