“Freedom of following any religion has been ensured in Sri Lanka, as religious philosophies help people live more virtuous and disciplined lives” said the President today (04) at the bicentennial celebration of the Methodist Church of Thempola, Raddolugama.

President stated further that, although physical development such as construction of roads and buildings has increased, spiritual development Las lagged behind. However, moral development of people is an indicator of the true development of a country.

Recognising the difficulties that Christian parents face when entering their children to schools, President mentioned that if there are such issues, solutions can be found by discussing the matters with the Ministry of education.

Rev Asiri Perera, President of the Methodist Church of Sri Lanka and the Director of Seeduwa Urban Council Rev. Nadeera Perera received gifts from President  at this event occasion.

President also honoured donors of the church.

Hon. Sudarshani Fernandopulle and other politicians were present.
