Ave Maria Mother Teresa Museum

Myra Janco Daniels, Volunteer Project Chair

In 2013, the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta officially granted permission to Ave Maria University to establish the “Mother Teresa Project,” the first of its kind in the world. The goal of this project is to educate a new generation of students to become educated in - and follow in the footsteps of - Mother Teresa, who is widely considered the most beloved person of the 20th century.

Myra Daniels and architect Gene Aubrey collaborated to create the Mother Teresa Museum. Myra served as a planner, visionary, fundraiser, and chairperson. Opening its doors to the public in April 2014, the museum features displays of Mother Teresa's life, letters and memorabilia. 

“I love Mother Teresa. I wish I had the guts she had,” says Myra Daniels. “She went out on the streets, and she didn’t spare anything. To me, she is the kind of leader you seldom see.”
