Catholics celebrate

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, August 23, 2014

ABOUT 10,000 Catholics are expected to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Holy Cross Parish in Wairiki, Taveuni this weekend.

Organising committee member Savenaca Vulaca said as of yesterday, more than 2000 people had arrived on the island.

"The idea for the 150th anniversary celebrations had begun way back in 2010," he said.

"The preparations for the special event began in 2012 after extensive preparatory plans before each sub-parish were tasked with their duties during the celebration this year.

"Some have been tasked with food preparation while others will deal directly with the billeting and hosting of visitors coming for the celebrations."

Mr Vulaca said delegations from as far as South Africa, Rome, Australia, New Zealand and other Pacific Island countries had arrived in Wairiki over the past six days.

"We have former students from the Western region in Nadi, Ba, Lautoka and Rakiraki also attending."
