Together with the general meeting they also marked the international women’s day celebration. They had a session on “Women in the present context” and discussed the challenges the women face in Sri Lanka. The WSCF AP liturgy was used for our worship that day. The business meeting went on very well and a productive input was presented on “our sons & daughter shall prophesy” by one of our senior friends Mr. Lakshman Gunasekara.
The most encouraging fact was that the student’s participation was at a peak at this event. The new committee hopes to take forward the SCM mission Sri Lanka in a fruitful way.
