Visit of CAFOD theological group

A three- member team from the CAFOD Theology Program visited Sri Lanka from 14th to 24th January 2014 with the objective of gaining direct knowledge of the projects facilitated and delivered by CAFOD partners, as well as to meet with theologians in this country and to also share with colleagues in Sri Lanka some of the current work of CAFOD’s Theology Program.

The team was made up of Liam Hayes, CAFOD’s Theology Program Advisor, Fr. Augusto Zampini who is a member of CAFOD Theology Reference Group (TRG) and Catherine Gorman, Communications Coordinator of the CAFOD Theology Program.

During their visit, they held discussions with Rev. Fr. George Sigamoney, National Director of Caritas Sri Lanka SEDEC and with key program staff in the National Centre. They also had informal discussions with a few Catholic Bishops, some representatives of, Buddhist, Hindu and Islamic faiths as well as with women social activists and members of Anglican and Methodist Churches.

They visited the dioceses of Kandy, Anuradhapura and Batticaloa where they witnessed the progress of CAFOD- funded projects and met with several groups of beneficiaries.
