The Cathedral of Blessed Mother Teresa in Pristina (Albanian: Katedralja e së Lumes Nënë Tereza në Prishtinë) in Pristina, Kosovo[a] is a Roman Catholic cathedral being constructed. In 2007 the Government of Kosovo approved plans for the building.[1] The church's foundation was ceremonially laid by former Kosovo president Ibrahim Rugova, himself a Muslim.[2] It is dedicated to Blessed Mother Teresa.

Upon the cathedral's completion, the diocese covering Kosovo will move from Prizren to Pristina.[2] The cathedral will be one of Pristina's tallest buildings when it is complete.[3]

Notes:

a. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Kosovo. The latter declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. Kosovo's independence has been recognised by 107 out of 193 United Nations member states.
