Jaffna College could not conduct its annual carol service at the Cathedral at Vaddukoddai in line with its long-held traditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A small-scale carol service was, instead, held in Ottley Hall, Jaffna College on the 14th of December 2020.  At this modest event, the teachers and students of the College sang carols in Tamil, Sinhala and English and played musical instruments. The Rt. Rev. Dr. Daniel Thiagarajah, Bishop of the Jaffna Diocese of the Church of South India and Chairperson of the Jaffna College Board of Directors, delivered the Christmas message.
