Welcoming the new Provincial Superior to the community

Welcome to our new Provincial Superior

February 22nd 2022 was a Joyous day for our pre-Novitiate community in Galle as we welcomed our new Provincial Superior Rev. Sister Patsy Nesamalar and her two Councilors, Sisters Pradeepika and Jenita.
The Pre – Novicess welcomed them with Arathi and betel leaves and the Sisters in the Community of Sacred Heart Convent welcomed with 3 beautiful rose plants, and also the teachers of Sacred Heart Convent School and Montessori were on the spot to welcome the Sisters.
The day was filled with joy and happiness.

New Postulants to us

Entry to the Pre – Novitiate

Our three candidates, Miss. Shehani Kaushalya, Miss. Ignashiya Tharshiny, and Miss. Charles Thushyanthi entered the Pre – Novitiate on the 20th February 2022, after 3 days of intense prayer before their entry.
The Pre – Novicess, Hiruni and Niyomi arranged the Chapel beautifully for the prayer service. We had a very meaningful prayer service, during which the three candidates made their request to enter the Pre – Novitiate. Sister Malkanthi Fernando, the Superior of the Community accepted their request and welcomed them to the Pre – Novitiate.
We wish God’s special blessings on our newly entered candidates, may they be open to the Spirit and be formed with the help of their Master Jesus Christ.

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...
