Agnieszka Krawczynski of The B.C. Catholic newspaper reports that it has been 25 years since Mother Teresa and seven sisters arrived in Vancouver carrying cardboard boxes and spreading support for life and the poor. Four of them stayed in this city to create a long-lasting impact.

"We owe a great deal to the Missionaries of Charity," stated Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, at the anniversary celebration April 27. He praised their remarkable efforts in the Downtown Eastside.

"The wounds of Jesus are still present in His people, and those wounds need to be taken care of," he said, thanking the Missionaries of Charity for tending to the injuries of homelessness, hunger, and imprisonment here for a quarter of a century.
