Mother Teresa was born on 26th August 1910 in Skopje, at present the capital of Macedonia to Albanian parents as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhin. Out in the open early to prayer and service, she was profoundly religious. When she attainted the age of 18, she left her residence for Dublin, Ireland, to unite the Loretto abbey and turned into a nun of the Roman Catholic Church. Subsequent to a year in Ireland, she left and joined the Loretto convent India in the north east Indian city Darjeeling, where she spent 17 years of teaching and served as the principal of St. Mary's High School in Kolkata.

In 1948 with the consent of the Pope, she left the convent, substituted her robes for a white sari having a blue border, and went to reside in the slums of Kolkata, where she embarked on her job by compassion for a lone dying person she found on the streets. The Missionaries of Charity was authoritatively established as a religious parishioner for the Archdiocese of Calcutta during October 1950.
