Remembering Fr. Marcelline Jayakody


The 120th birth anniversary of Fr. Marcelline Jayakody, who was affectionately known as the “Father of the Temple”, which illustrated his efforts to build a close rapport between Christians and Buddhists, falls today.

The President of the Fr. Marcelline Jayakody Foundation Ananda Karunaratne said that to mark the occasion a donation of educational magazines will be distributed among students of the National School at Buthgampola, situated close to Sandalankawa which is the birthplace of the late Priest, today.
