Washington, D.C.—On Thursday, October 25, 2012, Washington National Cathedral will hold a special service of Choral Evensong to dedicate a carving of Mother Teresa that has been completed in the Cathedral’s Human Rights Porch.

The carving appears alongside other stone carvings in this porch celebrating those who struggle to bring equality and social justice to all people including Archbishop Óscar Romero, former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, former Cathedral Dean and Bishop of Washington John T. Walker, and civil rights leader Rosa Parks.

Sculpted by Chas Fagan of North Carolina, the depiction of Mother Teresa was then carved in place by Cathedral stone carver Sean Callahan.
