“Whatsoever you do to the least of my
brethren you did it to me.” (Mt 25:35-40)
The Missionaries of Charity Sisters (Mother
Teresa’s Sisters or the Sisters of Mother Teresa,
as many call us) is a religious community in the
Catholic Church, founded by Mother Teresa of
Calcutta (now St. Teresa of Calcutta) in 1950
in Calcutta, India. Our community is totally
dedicated to the service of the poorest of the
poor, irrespective of social class, creed, colour or religion.
We deliberately choose to show God’s
concern for the poorest and the lowliest,
remaining right on the ground, while offering
immediate and effective service to those in
need, until they can find someone who can help
them in a better and more lasting way.

In the words of our founder, Mother Teresa of Calcutta,
“The aim of the Missionary Sisters of Charity is to
devote themselves heart and soul and exclusively to the
material and spiritual welfare of all destitute people,
the helpless poor, neglected children, the abandoned
sick, lepers and deserving beggars – in short all those
unfortunates who, either through their own neglect or
through lack of public concern, are left to drift through
life without help or hope.”

“Missionaries of Charity do not “impose their Catholic
Faith on anyone, but have profound respect for all
religions.” M.C. Constitutions

The Missionaries of Charity is the only organization
founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta to carry out her
mission of love and perpetuate her legacy. As a
registered charity in India (and various other countries
of the world), and with its headquarters in Calcutta, the
organization is serving the poorest of the poor across
the globe.

We, the Missionaries of Charity Sisters, give
wholehearted and free service to the poorest of the
poor irrespective of social class, colour, creed
or religion.
