The schools and colleges managed by the Catholic Organizations in Sri Lanka will start working from May 14th, 2019. His Excellency Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith announced the date through a press meet.
The religious institutions were shut down after the incidents of the violent terrorist attack in Sri Lanka in various churches and Hotels. The schools and the colleges under non- religious management had already started working since the last week.
The Cardinal has also informed the Priests in various parishes to start the Holy mass services on the Sunday under secure conditions.
Since the fear of new attacks is still prominent on the Christian places of Worship in Sri Lanka, the Catholic Church in the country has taken the decision to cancel the Sunday Masses until further notice. It was April 21st, 2019, the Islamist suicide bombers planned a coordinated attack in six different locations which included Catholic churches and hotels killing at least 250 people.
