Festival of Friendship 2020 | Four Saint Teresas: Boss Women Who Changed the World

36 people attended
The Festival of Friendship 2020 kicks off with a fascinating look at the life of St Thérése of Lisieux — along with three other saints who share her name: St Teresa of Avila; St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein); and St Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa). These revolutionary women impacted not only their communities but also the universal Church. Join us as we start the eighth edition of the Festival of Friendship with four astounding women who still have lessons to impart.
