Nuwangi Rashmi de Mel has followed many spiritual services via radio, television and social media during the Covid-19 pandemic as her parish church has closed.
In her home, in the mornings and evenings, she broadcasts all the religious programs to her family members on the radio and television.
"We can't go to the parish church and don't get the Eucharist, but we are encouraged to build heaven with our family members at home," said de Mel.
Catholic media including Seth FM radio, Verbum TV, Radio Veritas and social media have connected to provide prayer services in which the faithful pray to save Sri Lanka and the world and to battle against the rapid spread of Covid.
