Plunge of faith

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, April 19, 2014

CATHOLICS from the Naweni and Wailevu area took a plunge of faith during the Easter crosswalk from their villages to the St Bedes College grounds in Savusavu yesterday.

A crowd of more than 1000 Catholic believers from Savusavus St Andrews Parish reenacted the stations of the cross, an event held worldwide to commemorate the walk of Jesus to his crucifixion site.

The walk ended yesterday with a service where members enacted a moving drama of the events that took place during the crucifixion.

Parish priest Father Mateo Sovaki said members from the four districts Naweni, Navatu, Wailevu and Nasavusavu, who came under the parish, would camp at the grounds until tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon.

Fr Sovaki said the camp was held by the faithful who had observed the crosswalk from their villages to converge on St Bedes College grounds where the parish would celebrate its Easter services.

The parish has an aim of promoting chastity and holiness among its members and also encouraging members to be united in oneness, he said.

We also want members to embrace the deeper meaning of Lent and Easter following the stations of the cross through fasting and praying.

God has made the biggest sacrifice by giving up the most precious thing that He owned His son.
