The servant leaders, members and collaborators of the Catholic Biblical Federation of Southeast Asia heartily congratulates Fr. Jeya as we fondly call him as the new Provincial Superior of the Jesuits of Sri Lanka. We wish as well to express our esteemed gratitude and valued appreciation to Fr. Jeya for his immense efforts and devoted services to the Catholic Biblical Federation particularly the sub-region of Southeast Asia as an active member and director of the East Asian Pastoral Institute. In the words of the Sub-regional Coordinator: “Since the time of Fr. Jeya, communication was never a lot better.” Fr. Jeya was instrumental to the realization and implementation of the noble project of the CBF-SEA to organize in the sub-region the Biblical Pastoral Training with EAPI as the venue. The BPT was a great success slated last January 4 to April 2, 2010 under the directorship of Fr. Jeya. Again, our heartfelt gratitude.
We give the assurance to Fr. Jeya of our sincere prayers as he begins today, May 24 his new life and mission as Provincial Superior of the Jesuits’ Sri Lankan Province. Rest assured of our prayers for God’s choicest blessings upon you. We wish you the best!
