Sampath Mayakaduwa told the Archbishop, his management and all workers grieve with the ill-fated Catholic people due to the recent bomb blasts.

The largest ASA Polymer factory in South Asia owned by the Idea Group that produces i-Panel ceiling sheets and i-Roof products is situated at Katana in the vicinity of the devastated church in Katuwapitiya.
