How the project started
Three good friends from different parishes across Brisbane had been making annual visits to Marian Valley together for several years, giving thanks for the year. The place is very special to them, as it is to so many others. One day they simply thought that they too could contribute something new to Marian Valley. And in discussing it at home, one of their wives suggested building a place for Mother Teresa.
Together, these three families have spent 18 months planning, bringing their idea to life.

Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta is known the world over and so many lives have been touched or changed by her. She was the founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic congregation of women dedicated to helping the poor. Considered one of the 20th Century’s greatest humanitarians, she was canonised as Saint Teresa of Calcutta in 2016.

Become a Weekend Host
The Shrine will be a place where people can go to learn more about Mother Teresa whilst growing in their faith. To help this become a reality, the organising committee are looking for 52 families to each “host” Mother Teresa for one weekend a year at the Shrine.
It’s a great opportunity to have an annual family mission or weekend away together to focus on faith, and to share the life and spirituality of Mother Teresa with others.
