Fr. Glen was the third in the family of eleven. He was born on 2nd of January 1941 in Periyamulla Parish. He was brought up by his very religious and conservative parents in a religious and disciplined environment. From his childhood he was exemplary in performance, whether at home or at school. With Deep sensitivity his sense of commitment dedication to anything he undertook was remarkable.


He received his education at St Anthony’s’ College Katugasthota and Maris Stella College Negombo. The OSB priests and the Maris brothers had a great impact on his life. Imbibed with deep religious convictions, with enviable ethics and moral values, very early in his life, he showed a great desire to save the Lord. Propelled by the reality of the suffering of the poor, the oppressed and the down trodden he pursued his vocation despite initial constraints and obstacles. He joined the Redemptorist congregation and was ordained a priest in 1971. Very early in his vocation he demonstrated his ability to positively influence others by his spiritual leadership. After his ordination saving in the parishes of St Theresa’s Church Thimbirigasyaya and Sacred Heart Church, Rajagiriya as rector of the Redemptorist Seminary and as head of the Redemptorist congregation he performed his onerous duties and obligations with commendable zeal and exemplary dedication.
The most significant contribution that he made to society and the nation was his work in the upliftment and rehabilitation of lepers under his guidance and dynamic leadership. The society for the Upliftment and rehabilitation of Lepers was very close to his heart and he guided the society with great dedication and enthusiasm. At the time of his death the society was caring for 487 persons who shunned by society were living pathetic lives. Rev. Fr. Glen Fernando passed away on 3rd of July 2007.
