Catholic Church has observed that Pope’s visit to Sri Lanka between Jan 13 and 15 is confirmed and that there is no truth in reports that his visit is postponed.
It also states that Pope will conduct a Mass at Galle Face Green. He will also elevate Rev.Fr. Joseph Vaz as the first Saint of Sri Lanka.
He will proceed to Madu Shrine on the same day thereafter. Church revealed these facts at a media meeting held at Colombo yesterday. Rev.Fr. J.D.Antony and Rev. Fr. Cecil Joy Perera.
