ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari Tuesday approved the conferment of Sitara Quaid-i-Azam on Sister John Berchmans Conway, Principal Convent of Jesus & Mary Karachi, and Father Robert McCulloch, Religious Priest Procurator General.
Sister John Berchmans Conway has been conferred the honour for her services towards education and promoting interfaith harmony in Pakistan. She has spent 59 years teaching Muslim, Christian and Hindu girls from different parts of Pakistan, and under her able leadership, the institution has been providing quality education to Pakistani girls. Sister Berchmans has touched the lives of countless Pakistani schoolgirls as a mentor, counsellor, friend and teacher. Her constant adherence to the call of duty spanning over 59 years has made her a living example to emulate, says the citation forwarded to the president for conferment of Sitara Quaid-i-Azam.
Father Robert McCulloch, meanwhile, is a member of the Society of Saint Columbian. Father Robert is also the Chairman of the Saint Elizabeth Hospital’s Administrative Council - a hospital that is providing quality medical services to the people of Hyderabad and rural parts of Sindh, and also runs a medical outreach programme in rural Sindh.
This hospital is home to one of the few postnatal intensive care units in Pakistan. In recognition of 59 long years services of Sister John Berchmans Conway and multiple services rendered by Father Robert McCulloch for the welfare of the people of Pakistan over 30 years of faithful devotion, the president has approved the conferment of Sitara Quaid-e-Azam upon both individuals.
