It was with great joy and anticipation that the Annual Get Together of the “De Mazenod Scholarship Foundation” was held on 24th June 2017 at Fatima Church, Maradana. Fr. Irwin MORAES, Provincial Superior of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Colombo Province, was the Chief Guest. Twenty five students were awarded scholarships. Fr. Dennis IDDAMALGODA, the Founder of the De Mazenod Scholarship Foundation, addressed the gathering, sharing his inspiring thoughts. All preparatory and related work was handled by Frs. Clement WAIDYASEKARA, Justin SILVA, Angelo WIJEWICKRAMA and Ajith WELLINGTON who together with Fr. Dennis Iddamalgoda should be lauded for this committed service towards this worthy cause as they strive to shoulder the enormous responsibility of continuing the mission of Jesus.
