About Us

Karampon St Sebastian's Church Management Council (Colombo Branch) consist primarily of the Church parishioners and its reporting committee. Our Council is guided by Patron Bishop of jaffna Rt. Rev. Dr. Justin Gnanapragasam, Vice Patron  Parish Priest and executive committee. The Executive Committee is the governing body of church activities. 

The formation of Management Council was the miracle of St Sebastian. The initiative had come to our parishioners of Karampon St Sebastian's Church by parish priest of Rev Fr Christopher during early 2010. He voluntarily requested to organize the meeting among the parishioners of church who are living in Colombo. He personally called Mr Angelo and forwarded his intention. Then it was discussed and all parishioners of Karampon church are invited. The first meeting was held on 14th February 2010 at Mr. S B David in Colombo. The parish priest forwarded the development of church and future of Karmpon parishioners. In order to continue the church development and finding the fund for the church renovation, the first executive committee was formed under the leadership of Mr. A J Thurairatnam with 12 executive committee members. 

The council executive committee includes the president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and council members. The council meets on a quarterly basis to consider issues and recommendations brought forth by the church boards and committees. The council is authorized to render decisions concerning all business of the congregation and to approve expenditures up to preauthorized levels.
