The inauguration ceremony for the new Academic Year 2015-2016 at the Philosophate was held on the 2nd of October in the Marius Peiris Auditorium. Both the Rector of the National Seminary, Very Rev. Fr. Elmo Dias and the Dean of the Philosophy department, Rev. Fr. Ajith Wellington OMI addressed the students. Both Diocesan and Religious Brothers were warmly welcomed. Rev. Fr.

Wellington reminded about the demands regarding the study of Philosophy. At the end, the Director of the Philosophate, Rev. Fr. Ajith Prasanna addressed the gathering. We look forward to a graceful year in which love of wisdom is fostered in the hearts of our Brothers.
