Annual Sick Day blessing at Tewatte Basilica

The Annual Sick Day Blessing at Tewatte Basilica dedicated to Our Lady of Sri Lanka will be held on Sunday, August 25, at 1.00 pm, with Colombo Archbishop Malcolm, Cardinal Ranjith, as the presiding prelate.

The President of the Italian Episcopal Conference, Cardinal Gueltiero Bassette will also participate in the blessing ceremony with other religious dignitaries representing dioceses from across the country. Administrator of the Basilica, Rev. Fr. Victor Jayamanne told the media that the devotees who will gather at the Basilica grounds will not be permitted to put up temporary shelters this year as they used to do in the past, on account of the prevailing security situation in the country. “We expect devotees to comply with our request and extend their support to maintain security at the Basilica grounds.”
