Sabbath Day – 2018
The 24th of October the Catholic Students’ Movement units from the different universities made their way to the New Arts Theatre in order to join in the Annual Sabbath Day of the Catholic Students Movement of the University of Colombo. The Chief Guest, Most Reverend Dr. Oswald Gomis Archbishop Emeritus of Colombo and Chancellor of the University of Colombo, arrived towards mid-morning and was greeted with dancers and drummers from the University of Visual and Performing Arts, who accorded him a traditional welcome in keeping with the theme of the day, “Hela Kithu Puranaya”.
Several speeches were made, and then Holy Mass was celebrated. With the conclusion of Mass, the Bishop was felicitated on his 50th anniversary of the priesthood. The evening session was enriched with several entertainment items. The sun set over the University premises as the event ended up in success making it a memorable day.
