PARISH OF SAINT MOTHER THERESA IN ALEKSINAC

The beginning of history of the Catholic community in Aleksinac area dates from the late nineteenth century, when a large number of workers, Slovenes, Slovaks, Poles, Italians and Croats came to live there. For a long time it was the only pastoral center in the parish of Niš. In later years, there was a need for the church in this town, and its construction began in the late nineties of the twentieth century. Next to the church, Caritas center was built and funds for it were donated by Slovenian and Italian Caritas (due to the fact that the Aleksinac mines were closed, a large population was poor, charitable work proved to be necessary).The first Holy Mass was served in 2001 in the new parish church dedicated to Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The church was blessed by Cardinal Mons. Tarscisio Bertone, archbishop of the Italian city of Genoa. The ceremony was attended by the Bishop of Niš Irinej, now the Patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church, with his entourage. No matter how ‘small but beautiful, with the picture of the new Blessed, the church was the pride and joy of the believers of Aleksinac’.
