At the urging of CRS’ Eileen Egan, Mother Teresa comes to the United States for the first time to address the National Convention of the National Council of Catholic Women. There, she thanks them—and CRS—for their early support of the Missionaries of Charity. Eileen, who joined CRS in 1943 as our first layperson, had met Mother Teresa 5 years earlier in Calcutta. She became an early advocate of her work and a lifelong friend and correspondent. Mother Teresa would visit CRS’ U.S. offices twice: once in New York in 1977, and once in Baltimore in 1996.
