  2. My parents Shirley Meynert and Marguerite D’Olivera were married at St. Philip Neri Church on the 13th October 1945. I visited this church with my husband in 2013 for the first time since our family left Sri Lanka in 1972. Being there was awesome and we were so very pleased it has been well maintained and cared for with much love. Thank you.
