The establishment of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish was announced in February 2006 by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The new parish, created through the consolidation of Saint Clare Parish in Linfield and St. Peter Parish in Pottstown, will eventually sit on 24 acres in the area of Swamp Pike and Neiffer Road in Limerick. For now, the parish will use the Linfield site as the parish center and the Pottstown campus as the pastor's residence. The school is located at the Pottstown campus.

The parish is named after Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who dedicated her life to serving the poorest of the poor. Pope John Paul II beatified her in October 2003.
