The priests, Religious of the parish together with the parishioners and the students from the two schools of St. Servasious College, Matara & St. Mary’s Girls’ School Matara are now praying the Rosary with the Joyful Mysteries by joining the Annual Global Rosary Relay for Priests 2013 from the Shrine of Our Lady of Matara. The recitation of the Holy Rosary started at 10.00 am at the National Shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Matara. Thousands of faithful are made aware from different social networks inviting them to be united with the National Shrine at Matara to pray for the priests in the World.

Priests, Religious and Lay Faithful of the diocese were also invited to join us in reciting the Rosary on this great occasion from where ever they are as everyone cannot come to the Shrine of Our Lady of Matara. I am sure that thousands from Sri Lanka are praying for the Priest now by joining the Rosary Relay. Most Rev. Dr. Raymond Wickramasinghe the Bishop of the Diocese of Galle is now united with us from overseas’ Mission to pray the Rosary.

There after a Holy Eucharist will be celebrated for the intentions of the priests in the world.
