It has been said that St Theresa’s started small. There had been a small shed, where Holy Mass was offered on Sundays by the Dominicans. And every Sunday Reverend Fr. Frendo would coax the people to buy a brick to build the church. The benevolent and the affluent – both living around this church vicinity and St. Mary’s Bambalapitiya – contributed generously for the purpose. A marble brick placed at the entrance to the church stands testimony to those who supported magnanimously.
