Our philosophy has continued to be based on the words and works of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Each season we research causes and focus on projects which allow St. Dunstan school and parish to participate in expressions of Christian fellowship and contribution to our community – indeed the values practiced by Mother Teresa during her lifetime. Meetings will take place on every fourth Monday of each month (unless noted otherwise) during the school year at 7:00 p.m. in the School Library. Email TERESA Committee.
