Foundation Stone of St. Mother Teresa School in Haidargarh Blessed
The little town and the People of Haidargarh, lying about 65 kilometers from Lucknow City, were joyful and felt blessed when the Bishop of Lucknow, Most Rev. Gerald J. Mathias, blessed the Foundation Stone of a new School, St. Mother Teresa School, to come up in this small town, near Lucknow. A few Fathers, well wishers and others witnessed the brief ‘Foundation Stone Laying Ceremony”. A Priest Residence and a small Chapel are already in the final stages of completion. A Priest will soon reside there and explore the possibility on the type of School that may be needed in this area, especially with regard to the Medium of instruction, Hindi or English. Generally the people in North India prefer English Medium Schools, run by the Church calling them by the common name of ‘Missionary Schools’! The new School is to come up on the land of about 8 kilometers, purchased by the Diocese a few years ago.
