St. Francis Xavier's Church Nuwara Eliya

Since 1848

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28: 19 – 20

St. Francis Xavier's Church, situated in the heart of Nuwara Eliya town, was built on the 23rd of October 1838. It is the first Christian church ever built in Nuwara Eliya and it is believed that the church has been erected on a piece of land allotted by Governor Torrington.

Many people hereabouts are not becoming Christians for one reason only: there is nobody to make them Christians.
