Saint Teresa of Calcutta House Intro

Morgan Knoblock

Hey there! My name is Morgan Knobloch, and I’m a senior communication major from Archer City, TX. Here at St. Mary’s, I’ve served as a group leader for John 15, grown through discipleship with FOCUS, experienced Aggie Awakening as both a retreater and staffer, and helped with the Aggie Catholic Blog. On campus, I help lead Lambda Pi Eta, a communications honors society, and work for the Texas A&M Foundation as a writing intern in the marketing department. Some of my favorite things in life include taking roadtrips with friends, playing volleyball, and eating breakfast food. In between classes and work and other projects, you can find me trying to learn how to play the guitar, taking care of my succulents, or baking something sweet (most likely Joanna Gaines’ chocolate chip cookies). Know that I am praying for you as you begin this new journey, and I can’t wait to welcome you here to St. Mary’s and Texas A&M!

Nick Johnson

Howdy! My name is Nick Johnson and I am a junior computer science major from San Antonio, TX.  At St. Mary’s I’ve been involved as a group leader in John 15, a member of prayer bench, and as a CMT on leadership for Aggie Awakening. I’m a big sports fan who will argue all day for my teams, including the San Antonio Spurs, NY Giants, and of course our Ags. I’m also a soon-to-be guitar master and love to cook all sorts of food (trust me, I make a mean chicken piccata).

About St. Teresa of Calcutta:

Throughout her life, Mother Teresa embodied love. Born in Macedonia in 1910, Mother Teresa joined a community of nuns called the Sisters of Loreto at the age of 18 to go begin her mission work in India. After several years of teaching local children, Mother Teresa felt a new call from God to go into the poorest areas of Calcutta and serve the people there. In each person she met, Mother Teresa encountered the person of Jesus Christ. Her mission was not to convert or change the people she served; she simply sought to love them with all she had, and in doing so, she changed the world. Mother Teresa later established The Missionaries of Charity, which has grown into an international Catholic charitable organization. She earned various awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize, before passing away in September 1997. After miracles in 1998 and 2015 attributed to her, she was canonized as St. Teresa of Calcutta on September 4, 2016. With her story, Mother Teresa teaches us to encounter the Risen Lord in every soul we encounter. She shows us how to love like Jesus in all aspects of our lives so that we may too become great saints one day.
