THE names of their church denomination did not stop them from coming together to celebrate the beginning of the traditional Easter crosswalk on Sunday night.
In remembering the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, members of the Saioni Methodist Church joined about 100 Catholic youths in the Bua Province to mark the beginning of the crosswalk from Lekutu to Solevu Parish.
Crosswalk committee member Vio Drou said the youths had different programs in their villages in preparation for the walk.
"Programs such as fasting, praying, retreat and other spiritual activities were part of the program," he said.
"The walk starts from Lekutu to Bua Lomanikoro and then to Dama, Wairiki, Vuya and the last pit stop is Solevu where the cross will be stationed for the Easter Friday celebration.
"This is the first time for the two Christian denominations to come together and partake in the crosswalk, something that never used to happen before."
Mr Drou said such a bilateral effort signified unity and togetherness.
"The walk is not only meant for the Catholics but also for other people who believe in the crucifixion and resurrection day of our Lord Jesus.
"We are really thankful to the Saioni Methodist Church for joining us and we look forward to celebrating Easter with them in the future."
