Educational institutions run by the Catholic Church will remain closed on October 2, Sunday, and henceforth on all Sundays, even if the government says the contrary, the KCBC has said. 

This is in view of Christians observing Sunday as a holy day and attending church mass. In addition, children, parents and teachers will have to attend church-related exams on the day.

In this situation, anti-drugs awareness campaigns that the government says must be organised in schools on Sunday, must be held on an alternative day, says Fr Jacob P. Palakkapilly, KCBC spokesperson, in a press release.
