WELCOME OF THE NEW BROTHERS TO THE PHILOSOPHATE FAMILY 2015-2016...

Last Saturday a warm welcome was given by the 2nd year brothers of Philosophy to Rev. Fr Nilantha Ediriwickrema and 30 3rd and 1st year brothers who joined the Philosophate family. The occasion commenced with the Holy Mass followed by a variety entertainment. Rev. Fr Nilantha Ediriwickrema, 23 brothers who came after completing their formation in the intermediate seminary at Kalutara and 7 brothers who came after finishing the 2nd year of Philosophy at St. Francis Xavier’s seminary in Jaffna introduced themselves to the Philosophate family. The new brothers performed items during the variety entertainment programme. Very Rev. Fr Elmo Dias in his speech reminded all the brothers that we should be happy always without just getting by in the seminary and we should carry our own cross during this journey towards the priesthood. We wish all the very best to all the new comers and a joyful stay.
