A STC OBA Canada event that commenced last year has generated a lot of interest this
year, with members and family from all religious groups showing a lot of interest.
What is significant about this event is also that many non executive members will be
in charge of the organization of each event.
The ‘Celebration of Life’ is an event for family and friends of Thomians to gather
in their respective temples and give thanks for the many blessings Thomians have
enjoyed in this wonderful country, Canada. While we celebrate as Thomians, it also
gives us the opportunity to meet in prayer, offer alms and obtain merit and the
fellowship that follows. It also exemplifies the true Thomian spirit of religious
and racial tolerance that was inculcated into us as students of STC in Sri Lanka.
It is also timed to try and coincide as close as possible to the dawning of the New
Year in accordance with the customs and traditions we all grew up with in Sri Lanka
– the Sinhala & Tamil New Year.
The events planned are:
Saturday, April 13, 2013; 4.30 pm to 5.30 pm
