In Sri Lanka, St. Anthony has many devotees and several Churches have been erected in his honor. Perhaps the most popular one that daily attracts people of every caste, creed, or race is the one at Kochchikade, in the heart of the city of Colombo. One has only to visit this church on any Tuesday of the year, to see the thousands from North, South, East & West who come to pray to St. Anthony, to ask his help for some need, to fulfill promises made, to thank him for answering their prayers and show their love and respect.
