125th Jubilee…of SCJMs…

The 24th November is an unforgettable day for the SCJM in Sri Lanka and should be written in golden letters in the history of the Province of Sri Lanka. It is the day when the great missionary Sisters of Charity from Belgium set foot on the sand of Galle in Sri Lanka at the request of the late Mgr. Van Reeth of Belgium, who was the Bishop of Galle at that time. Mgr. Van Reeth had a Sister in the SCJM family in Belgium, who was the then Mother General and through her contact and negotiation the arrival of the Sisters of Charity became a reality in Sri Lanka. May the great souls who labored and planted the seed for the tree of SCJM in Sri Lanka now enjoying the bliss of God intercede for us to grow and spread its branches.  watch video...

EGC Transmission 2021

EGC Transmission 2021 – an unforgettable event.

The Virtual transmission took place on 30th August to September 3rd 2021. This was an unbelievable and unforgettable experience for the Province of Sri Lanka. At present Sri Lanka is under lockdown due to the pandemic. We are unable to move or travel and are confined to our homes in order to be safe. However, the virtual transmission gave us the opportunity to interact, to chat, to share, to see and enjoy meeting everyone in the Province including our dearest elderly sisters in Galle community. The impossibility was made possible through this virtual transmission. I raise my heart in gratitude to God for there is nothing impossible to God. He has done marvels. “No mind can understand, no eye can see the marvels God has in store for those who love him” (Rom. 8:38) (more…)

COVID 19 Experience in Kegalle

Amidst of COVID 19 pandemic, and bad weather that we experience very badly in our country, our elders are experiencing monotonous way of life. We need to get them out of this way of life. During Vesak festival, usually they go out and enjoy the Vesak decorations and dansal. Our Buddhist elders go to nearby temples and observe sil. Unfortunately due to this pandemic situation they are forced to stay inside. What could we do to take them out from this monotonous experience?

Yes, on the 25th of May (pre poya day) we arranged one of the Buddhist monks to visit our home and our Buddhist elders to observe sil.

We also made them to prepare Vesak decorations and decorated our home with lanterns.
On Vesak poya day we organized a Vesak dansal for all the meals and our priests opened the three main dansal. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We organized dansal without their knowledge. They were thrilled and enjoyed everything.
Especially our Buddhist elders were very happy. This is what we need. Everything organized by the sisters.
We know you all who are helping us want to see the happiness of our elders. That is why I want to share these photos with you. Please enjoy with our elders.
