Remembering Mother Teresa September 06, 2018

In the northern Philippines, Catholics marked the death anniversary of St. Teresa of Calcutta on Sept. 5 with a day of caring and giving.

The Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan held "Caritas Day" to promote awareness of the "primacy of charity in Christian discipleship."

Part of the activities were blood donations, distribution of food, seedlings, and fertilizer to farmers affected by floods, free hair grooming, and meals for all.
