“The Best Way to spread Christmas Cheer is Singing loud for all to hear”
The annual Christmas Carol service organized by the Catholic Students’ Movement (CSM) in collaboration with the Catholic Graduates’ Society of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, was held for the 7th consecutive year in much grandeur on the 19th December at the University premises.
While this event has a history of reaching new heights in terms of quality and quantity, this years’ service had a wonderful spark in its proceedings. It was none other than the graceful presence of the papal ambassador for Sri Lanka as the distinguished chief guest. For the first time in our University history, Apostolic Nuncio of Sri Lanka (Vatican Ambassador to Sri Lanka), His Excellency Archbishop Most Rev. Dr. Pierre Nguyên Van Tot visited the University of Sri Jayewardenepura and joined hands in this joyous occasion.
The University of Sri Jayewardenepura is home to those hailing from all walks of life representing a colorful array of cultural and religious diversity and as a result the students and the staff together unite in harmony to promote, encourage and embrace the beauty at all times. Therefore the very presence of His Excellency Archbishop Pierre Nguyen Van Tot was indeed a significant moment for all of at the University.
