Her father died when she was eight and she was raised by her mother. She was raised as a Roman Catholic and decided at a young age to devote her life to God. She joined the Sisters of Loreto at the age of 18 to ecome missionary in India. She first had to learn English. So she went to Ireland to learn English at the Loreto Abby.

She soon took her first vows as a nun and took the name, Teresa. She taught for many years in India, becoming the headmistress at a school in eastern Calcutta.

(5) Soon other women joined her and she formed the Missionaries of Charity. Mother Teresa described the purpose of the Missionaries of harity as an organization to take care of "the hungry, the naked, the homeless, the crippled, the blind, the lepers, all those people who feel unwanted, unloved and uncared for throughout society."
