Co-founder of Missionaries of Charity Fathers dies
Catholic World News - October 21, 2010
Father Joseph Langford, who, together with Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, founded the Missionaries of Charity Fathers, has died in Tijuana following a yearlong struggle with cancer. He was 59.
In 1979, Father Langford sought Blessed Teresa’s approval for the incorporation of priests into the charism of the Missionaries of Charity. After a year of discernment, she agreed, and the Priest Co-Workers, later named the Corpus Christi Movement for Priests, began. In 1984, the Missionaries of Charity Fathers were established as a religious institute; the Corpus Christi Movement continues as an association for diocesan priests.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
