Welcome to the official website of St. Mary’s Church, Dehiwala. We are glad that you have chosen to spend a few moments on World Wide Web, discovering our church family.
Located amidst a busy urban atmosphere in Dehiwala, St. Mary Church stands as a landmark of an active Christian Community. Ours is a traditional Roman Catholic Church which hails an existence of more than 180 years. As a Catholic Community of faith, our lives are centered on the Most Holy Eucharist. Members of our church family experience the joy of encountering the Lord, through participation in the Holy Mass more than any other activity. We also cherish a great love and reverence towards Blessed Virgin Mary.
As you browse through our website you will know our proud history, parish events, the schedule of liturgical celebrations, our associations and a glimpse of who we are. If you are a parishioner, I hope that you will find the necessary information you need, in order to become a fully engaged member our community. If you are a visitor, I hope that our website will be reflection of a wonderful parish and you will be drawn more into a life in Christ.
We welcome you and invite you to share in the spiritual and social activities of the church.
