The Servant of God, Mother M. Angeline Teresa McCrory

A book written by Rev. Jude Mead, C.P.

About the Book

This is the amazing story of the life of the Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa (1893-1984) who founded the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm in 1929.

She is concisely described as a Daughter of Carmel and a Mother to the Aged. Born in Ireland, educated in Scotland, she entered the convent in France and founded her own Community of Sisters in New York City. In this critical/historical biography Mother M. Angeline Teresa steps from the pages as a pioneer in the care for the Aged in the United States and a revolutionary leader in the field of geriatrics.
