St. Anne's Church
Wattala Parish

Wattala St. Anne's Parish is one of the most popular and leading parishes in the Archdiocese of Colombo. By grading the parishes in the Archdiocese, Wattala takes the 1st place and the payment of the 33% Archdiocesan levy depicts its status. The Parish compromises of more than 2,500 families. The present church and the parish hall buildings were built by the late Rev. Fr. Nicholas Perera about 60 years back. Due to non-regular maintenance and repairs of both buildings on regular basis, day by day they are in a dilapidated state.

Viewing at the 150 Jubilee in another couple of year's time, all the parishioners have been motivated to do the needful through the co-operation of the Parish Pastoral Council. To cover all the necessary renovations and reconstructions to update the same, a Master Plan has been prepared and we are happy to announce that this was approved and blessed by the Most. Rev. Cardinal  Malcolm Ranjtih -  Archbishop of Colombo.

To implement the  proposed master plan, a number of fund raising projects have been initiated.

Parallel to the material affairs, a spiritual programs have been implemented  such as house visiting, conducting cottage masses, issuing new family books, electing new members for the Basic Christian Communities, reorganizing the Parish Pastoral Council,  etc.  We hope to conduct a two week's Big Mission for the whole parish prior to the Jubilee.

Thank you for your continuous assistance in achieving this great goal in a successful manner. 

Wish you the blessings of St. Anne's.
