Catholics head to church to honor Saint Teresa

Catholics flocked to churches on Sunday to honor Pope Francis declaring Mother Teresa a saint.



Residents remember Saint Teresa as a stepping stone to change, but most importantly, her love to help.



People who attended church at St. Benedict on Sunday listened to Father Norton speak about Saint Teresa's journey to becoming a saint.



Pastor Norton hopes Saint Teresa's legacy of selflessly dedicating her life to the poor will live on.



"No matter what faith you belong to, she held them in great dignity. We are able to understand God loves all his children throughout the world. She gives us that example," he said.
