The First Holy Communion Mass of St. Peter’s College was held at a beautifully decorated Nicholas Perera Memorial Hall on Saturday,October 7th.

Sixteen priests graced the occasion, while Rev. Fr. Anthony Samaratunga conducted a very meaningful sermon highlighting the importance of receiving Jesus into the lives of these young Peterites.
