SACRED SPACE RESTORED

The historic St. Anthony’s Shrine, Kochchikade, in central Colombo, the interior of which was heavily damaged in the Easter Sunday suicide bombing, was re-consecrated yesterday evening by Archbishop of Colombo His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith. Following renovations undertaken by the Sri Lanka Navy the church re-opened for worship yesterday.
