She went by train and boat to Ireland. There she went to the home of the Loreto nuns. She wanted to be a Loreto nun because many of them worked in India.
Agnes stayed with the nuns at Loreto House in Dublin for six weeks. Then she was on a boat again – to India. She was now Sister Teresa.
These days, you can get from Ireland to India very quickly, but in those days people were on the boat for seven weeks. It went from Ireland to Spain, then across the Mediterranean Sea to Suez in Egypt, down the Red Sea, across the Arabian Sea to Sri Lanka, and then up to Calcutta in India. Calcutta was a big place with a lot of noise, but Darjeeling was quiet and beautiful.
Young Sister Teresa did not know much English, but she was a good student. She was friendly too and she often smiled. She was very happy there. After two years, her English was good, and she started to teach children in the nuns’ school.
Then she moved to one of the Loreto nuns’ schools in Calcutta. Its name was Loreto Entally, a big school for girls. Many of the girls were from poor families.
The school days started early in the morning, but the nuns’ days started before that. Every morning, the nuns prayed for a long time. Then they worked in the school in the morning and the afternoon. They worked in the evening too, because many of the girls lived at the school. After a long day, the prayed again and then went to bed.
The nuns did not have holidays. They did not listen to music or go shopping. They did not see their families. But they were happy because the lived for God. They were happy and strong all day because they remembered His love every morning.
Sister Teresa liked teaching, and she was good at it. She was a teacher at Loreto Entally for twelve years, and then, from 1944, she was the head teacher for four years.
