The present Premiere Catholic School of Sri Lanka which is St. Joseph's College didn't have a chapel
when it was established in 1896. The 4th Rector of the College Rev. Fr. M. J. Le Goc understood this and
took the initiative of building a magnificent, grand chapel in the best of Roman Architecture. The
foundation stone for the College chapel was laid on the 19th of March 1929 by the Archbishop of
Colombo Antoine Coudert O. M. I. It was renovated by Rev. Fr. Stanley Abeysekara and Rev. Fr.
Sylvester Ranasinghe. Currently it's been refurbished by Rev. Fr. Ranjith Andradi. The college chapel has
a length of 140 ft., a breadth of 130 ft., and a height of 90 ft. with a seating capacity for 1402 people. The
chapel is the principal place of worship at the College. Holy masses are celebrated daily at the chapel for
which every student can participate. The chapel contributes in the spiritual development of the College in
a marvelous way.
