Suva, Fiji, 24 June 2018 -- This is a wonderful opportunity to share with you some of the recent events that happen in Fiji - Suva! Synod of the Archdiocese of Fiji
The Archdiocesan Youth Rally took place on the weekend of 20-22 May 2018. This was a great experience. It began with a reflection on the prophetic mission of the young in the Church and in society.
The Synod of the Archdiocese of Fiji was officially opened by Archbishop Peter Loy Chong at a special Eucharistic Celebration on Sunday (22 May). It was a privilege to hear the presentations by Fr. Philip Gibbs (SVD) from PNG and Fr. Arthur Leger (SJ), now assigned to Fiji, on the Church and society in the world and in Fiji today. This helped me to deepen my faith. It was my first experience of a synod. I look forward to the Synod workshop with the youth later in the year.
Blessing the Foundation
The foundation of our new St. John Bosco Parish and Youth centres was blessed on 26 May. This photo was taken on that occasion with a few of my Sunday (Catechetics) School students from the villages of Makoi and Muanikoso.
Pastoral Work with the Young
Together with our senior Sunday (Catechetics) School students on a pastoral experience at the Home of Compassion. We spent the day helping the Sisters to clean the facilities, talk to the elderly, feed them and… in our typical Pacific way… entertain the elder in typically Pacific way.
