We look forward to your participation in our activities when feasible in the bonds of Benedictinity that binds us across the miles.

Please feel free to contact me should you need any info/news re the global Benedictine family as we move forward. Thanks for coming on board.

BRO.GRANVILLE PERERA FSC
Bro. Granville’s planned visit to Canada has been postponed.Bro.Granville the retired Director of St.Benedict’s is presently in USA enjoying a brief sojourn before returning home on November 25. I telephoned Bro.Granville in New Jersey and conveyed our OBA’s appreciation of his unrivalled record of service as Director from 2003 to 2011.

The response from some of our members in Vancouver,Calgary & Portland to host Bro.Granville during his previously planned visit was overwhelming.Please accept my gratitude for your spontaniety and goodwill which I am certain will resurface when Bro.Granville plans to visit Canada in the not too distant future.

BENEDICTINE NITE 2011

The Dance, popularly acclaimed as the best schools event in Sri Lanka will now take place on December 23rd at the Waters’ Edge.The organizers were requested to alter the date/venue in view of the mega racing competition slated for Dec 16/17 in Colombo.
The clamour for tickets specially from overseas Bens is still on and there is no doubt ‘Benedictine Nite’ will once again be a sell out.

BRO. JANAKA FONSEKA FSC

Bro.Janaka assumed duties on October 25 as the 38th Director of St.Benedict’s heading for its 150th year in 2015. I have conveyed a message of congratulations and good wishes to Bro.Director on behalf of our OBA and also a letter of appreciation to Bro.Granville.
