THE traditional condolence gathering or reguregu for the late Archbishop Petero Mataca begins in Suva today.

Church leaders from across the country, the region, government representatives and members of the Catholics Church from various divisions are expected to be part of the final funeral gathering for the late archbishop.

Archbishop Peter Loy Chong said the archdiocese of Suva would celebrate the life of Archbishop Mataca at the vigil mass on Thursday where his body would lie in state before the 10am resurrection mass on Friday followed by the burial.

President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama, government officials and leaders from the Fiji Council of Churches and leaders of other religious organisations are expected to be invited to the funeral service.
