Follow dress code

Mere Naleba

THE Catholic Church in Fiji and Rotuma is asking mourners who wish to pay their final respects to the late Archbishop Emeritus Petero Mataca to adhere to the dress code, which is strictly black and white.

Vicar General Father Suluo Turagakacivi said the traditional Fijian reguregu or funeral gathering officially started yesterday and many parishioners, as well as other denominations, had already presented their reguregu.

"We are expecting more to come in for the next two days before the burial on Friday and we are asking members of the public to follow the dress code which is black and white."

The funeral gathering is being held at the Immaculate Conception Parish in Lami.

Fr Turagakacivi said the Pacific Bible Society, the Pacific Council of Churches, parishes within the Central/Eastern Division and many other religious, corporate and NGOs had paid their final respects to the late former head of the Roman Catholic Church.
