WELCOME OF THE NEW RECTOR AND BROTHERS TO THE PHILOSOPHATE FAMILY 2016-2017...

A warm welcome was extended to the newly installed Rector Very Rev. Fr. Expeditus Jayakody, 29 first year Brothers and 5 Third year Brothers who joined the Philosophate family this year on the 9th of October. The occasion began with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Which was by a variety entertainment. 29 Brothers who completed their formation at Kalutara and 5 brothers who completed the first two years of Philosophy studies at the St. Xavier's Major Seminary in Jaffna introduced themselves to the rest of the Philosophate family. The evening was made colourful by the new items performed by the new Brothers. Rev. Fr. Director of the Philosophate reminded the Brothers during his speech that we have to make the most of what is given to us during this period of formation. We would like to extend our warmest wishes of welcome to all of these brothers and the new Rector and wish God's blessings upon them!
