FR. Silva on the lectern

Fr. Liyanage Neyomal Silva

I am Fr. Liyanage Neyomal Silva, and I would like to give you the Parishioners of "Good Shepherd" a brief biography about myself. I was born in Sri Lanka March 8,1981 and my parents are still alive. I have only one brother who is younger than me by 3 years. He is married and has two kids.
I was ordained a priest on January 24, 2012 to the diocese of Kurunegala which is situated in the North West of Sri Lanka. I served for four and half years in this diocese and came to Canada on May 4, 2016.
I have been serving in the diocese of Toronto at 3 parishes as the associate namely, at St. Patrick's Markham, Guardian Angels Oriffia and St. Mary's Barrie. I am here at Good Shepherd until Fr. Anthony's return.
As we are in the season of Lent let us try our best to get closer to God and to celebrate Easter the resurrection of our Lord with much spiritual preparation personally and as a community.
Thank you and may God bless you!
