Rev. Dr. J. D. Anthony. There were other priests too in attendance on this day. This service is also a long awaited event in the Bank by all staff members, irrespective of any religion, which is enjoyed by all. The Bank’s retired staff members too, eagerly await for this carol service, as it gives them an opportunity to meet each other and share their love and joy, which is the real meaning of Christmas.
