Local Order of Nuns Celebrates Mother Teresa’s Canonization

Mother Teresa will be canonized Sunday by the Catholic Church. She’s known for her work with the sick and poor in Calcutta. But her legacy of service is alive in Chicago. The order she founded, Missionaries of Charity, provides food, shelter and ministry in neighborhoods in the city. WBEZ’s Odette Yousef spent time with the nuns and she shares some of their stories, and what the canonization means to them.
