Special thanksgiving prayers have been organised at the Sacred Heart Cathedral at Bishops House here as part of the celebrations of canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkata on September 4, 2016.
The Nobel Laureate and Bharat Ratna Mother Teresa will be canonized by Pope Francis in Vatican on September 4, 2016 and, thereafter, the icon of love and compassion will be called Saint Mother Teresa.
The thanksgiving prayer at Cathedral here will be led by Joseph Aind, Bishop of the catholic diocese of Dibrugarh at 9 am. Nuns from the order founded by Mother Teresa will also take part in the religious event along with other priests, nuns, seminarians and general public.
A get-together to honour Mother Teresa is also lined up for the day’s celebration, said Parish Priest Fr Nicholas Kerketta.
A nine-day serial prayer (novena) is already under way in the run up to the canonization event at the decked up cathedral. A portrait of Blessed Mother Teresa has been placed inside the cathedral to honour and pay respect to her.
