THE Fiji Council of Churches, ECREA and other churches came together in a condolence gathering for the late president of the Methodist Church in Fiji, Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu.

And this move, according to the head of the Catholic Archdiocese of Suva, Archbishop Peter Loy Chong, was a sign of unity among the churches in Fiji.

"It is a sign of good energy, good spirit and unity," Archbishop Chong said.

"Not only the Christian churches but also non-Christians such as Muslims and Hindus."

He said the Fiji Council of Churches had planned for this condolence and the other churches followed.

Archbishop Chong said their presence also signified the kind of person Dr Waqairatu was.

He said this was symbolic of the unity that the council had been working on.

Presenting of condolences started yesterday at the Jubliee Hall in Toorak, Suva.

Dr Waqairatu will be buried at Davuilevu on Thursday.
