Official: September 4th Is Mother Teresa Day In NYS – Senator MARTY GOLDEN
March 29, 2016
Albany – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) today is announcing that the passage of a resolution he sponsored, J.4582, proclaiming September 4, 2016 “Mother Teresa Day” in the State of New York.
“On behalf of a life well lived in service to God and to neighbor, I am proud to introduce this resolution that will appropriately honor Mother Teresa in New York State to coincide with her canonization as a Saint of the Roman Catholic Church. For years, Mother Teresa, through her founding of the Missionaries of Charity, devoted herself to serving the needs of the sick and poor,” said Senator Golden.
“An international beloved symbol of hope, Mother Teresa born Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu of to an Albanian family, beyond measure, made a difference in the world and New York will always remember and honor her,” continued Senator Marty Golden. Senator Golden’s resolution authorizes the designation of September 4, 2016 in New York State, in honor of Mother Theresa, on the date she will be declared a Saint at a canonization ceremony to be held at the Vatican. In 2015, Pope Francis announced that Mother Theresa would be made a Saint after attributing two miracles to her. ###
