This conference was organized for participants in the Sinhala language.

As many as 21 priests, nuns, and laypeople from various groups benefited from this conference.

Father Daya S. Welikadarachi (Colombo), Father Uppul (Kurunegala), and Father Arosh Appuhamy (Chilaw) were the resource persons.

Saint Anthony Mary Claret founded the congregation on July 16, 1849, in Spain.


Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.”  Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
