On 30th July, the Sts. Peter and St. Paul's Church in Hewadiwela had a special day with the visit of Bishop Rt. Rev. Nishantha Fernando. The church was also celebrating its annual feast. Many priests, including Priest in Charge Rev. Samuel Ravindran, Rev. Samatha Kumara, Rev. Mallika Wijeratne, Rev. Victor Francis and others, joined in the celebration.

During the event, the Bishop confirmed several church members, which was a meaningful moment for everyone. There was a beautiful display made of coconuts shaped like a cross, reminding people of the church's faith and history.
