CBS 3 to feature Diocese of Trenton in segment about Mother Teresa

July 29, 2019 at 12:37 p.m.

Our Diocese Tod@y

Early March 15, Pope Francis announced that Blessed Mother Teresa will be canonized Sept. 4 in Rome. After the news broke from the Vatican,  the Diocese of Trenton welcomed a news team from CBS’ Philadelphia affiliate, CBS 3, to provide reflections about Mother Teresa’s visit to the Diocese more than 20 years ago.

The television journalists visited St. Mary of the Assumption Cathedral, Trenton, which, on June 18, 1995, overflowed with those gathered for a Mass celebrated by Bishop John C. Reiss to commemorate Mother Teresa’s visit.

The CBS crew also visited the Chancery in Lawrenceville where they interviewed Msgr. Leonard F. Troiano, then-communications director for the Diocese and now episcopal vicar for diocesan planning, who coordinated the Mass welcoming Mother Teresa.  Msgr. Troiano shared memories of the day and the plans that led up to it.

Lois Rogers, who covered the Mass as a reporter for the Asbury Park Press and later came to work for The Monitor, also reflected on that visit and the impact that Mother Teresa has had on her life.

The segment will air in CBS 3’s 5 p.m. broadcast, and also will be available at CBSPhilly.com.
