Kolkata, Aug 19 (IBNS): Archbishop Thomas D'Souza announced on Friday at the press meet that a life-size bronze statue of Mother Teresa would be installed at the Bishop house next to where the statue of Pope John Paul II currently stands.


The Archbishop announced that the statue would be installed at a special function on Aug 25 - the eve of Mother Teresa's birthday.

The statue has been donated by Mr Namit Bajoria who is the Designate Honorary Consul of Republic of Macedonia in Kolkata who is also engaged in various philanthropic activities.

The statue would be installed by Church Art - a Kolkata-based firm engaged in making various work of art for the church, schools and museums.
