Thursday, July 10, 2014

THE Catholic Church has been given the green light by the Suva City Council to bury the late Archbishop Emeritus Petero Mataca's body at the tomb, which is being specially prepared for the late former head of the Church in Fiji and Rotuma.

Father Suluo Turagakacivi said the church finally got informed about being given the approval to bury Mataca at the Sacred Heart Cathedral late yesterday.

"We have been contacting the contractors that are building the tomb and now, both the health department and the Suva City Council have given their approval, which is good news for us."

He said burial procession for the late Archbishop Emeritus would start today at 2pm with a procession from the Suva Private Hospital through to Amy St and Selbourne St.

"At the Sacred Heart Cathedral, there will be a slideshow that highlights the life of the late Archbishop at 4pm, which will be followed by a eulogy as no eulogy will be done during the resurrection mass on Friday."
