ABBOTTABAD: After about 42 years, since the handover of the institution to the Pakistan Army, the Revd. Fathers of the Mill Hill Mission once again stepped in the Army Burn Hall College for Boys on Friday.

The dignitaries were then led for a grand morning assembly. The visit of the campus made them happy as they witnessed the historic infrastructure constructed in the times of the missionaries. They were delighted to see the preservation of the legacy.

In the Scanlon Hall, the programme commenced with the recitation from the Holy Quran. It was followed by the introduction of the guests and recognition of the services of the Mill Hill Missionaries in the establishment of Army Burn Hall School.

Bishop Humphrey Sarfaraz Peters delivered a motivational lecture to the students. It had a special emphasis on the promotion of moral attributes.

Revd. Father Richard Anguyo shared his treasured thoughts and briefly told about his own ministry and the current services of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Pakistan.

He expressed his pleasure to be among the students and advised them to serve the Pakistani community after completing their studies.
