Suva, Fiji, 7 September 2017 -- At last! The long awaited work of clearing the land for our new Salesian pastoral centre in Fiji began on 7 September 2017, Constitution Day (a public holiday). Fr. Paselio Tevaga (Rector) and Fr Mika Leilua, the Parish Priest together with the confreres and novices were on site to witness the heavy machine get into action at 10:20 am.


The Mass of the Feast of the Birthday of Mary (8th September 2017) was dedicated to our Blessed Mother, the Help of Christians. She must have been watching over us. After many rainy days, three beautiful sunny days made the work easier.


The first stage of the project is to clear the difficult terrain so that there is a playing field and for building the Saint John Bosco Youth and Educational Centre (which will also serve as the parish centre before the church is built), the presbytery and the parish church.   It is located along the Suva-Nausori corridor in the developing suburb called Wainibuku.


As we express our thanks to God and to our Blessed Mother, we thank our Rector Major, Father Ángel Fernández Artime, for initiating this Salesian Pastoral Project in Fiji, Archbishop Peter Loy Chong (Archbishop of Fiji), Father Greg Chambers (Provincial), Father Petelo Vito Pa’u (Pacific Delegate), and all those have provided their support and encouragement.


This is a new beginning! Please continue to pray for the completion of this important Salesian work for the youth and people of Fiji and the Pacific.
