CHURCH OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA
THE PARISH PRIEST'S MESSAGE
I am both pleased and privileged to pen a few words, as the website of the parish of Battaramulla is launched. The church dedicated to our lady of Fatima, with its specific architectural design seems to reflect the simplicity as well as the deep concern our lady showed towards little children, and the garden surrounding it the beauty, bounty and variety of god’s creation. The parish community upholds both traditional values as well as embraces new horizons with enthusiasm has been most supportive when projects for spiritual upliftment have been launched. While admiring the spirit of generosity and gratitude of the parish community, it is my fervent belief that the launching of the website will be a positive effort towards far-reaching apostolic work as well a wider and deeper devotion to our lady. Since the activities of the various committees and associations can now be high-lighted in a more attractive manner in today’s context, hopefully new-blood would be drawn in and greater participation can be envisaged. It is my most fervent prayer and sincere wish that the website will be an effective means for the growth of a Christian community, deeply rooted in our Lord, and protected by our lady of Fatima and united in love and concern for one another.
God bless you!
THE MESSAGE FROM THE SECRETARY OF THE PARISH COUNCIL
The 9th of August will remain as an important day in our Church calendar not only to us but also to our future generation. We dedicate this newly built BLESSED SACRAMENT CHAPEL which stands out as a token of appreciation to our Lord and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. “The god of heaven himself has helped us succeed, we will trust his world and believe in the sovereign Lord who always keeps his promises”.
Our heartfelt thanks to our parish priest REV.FR.RONNIE WICKRAMASINGHE for the grace bestowed upon him to complete this massive task within a short period of time. Challenges of the church are ever demanding. One of which is the replacement of the entire dilapidated church roof. Rev. Father has been unique in his own way for the great growth in our church needs. Thank you, father, for being a wall of fire and protection around our congregation.
His EMMINANCE MALCOM CARDINAL RANJITH is here by a Divine appointment to dedicate this magnificent BLESSED SACRAMENT CHAPEL on this historic day. Your EMMINANCE, we thank you profusely for being God’s true servant.
