The New Crop of Columban Missionaries from the Pacific

Filled with Missionary Seal by the Holy Spirit.
Pentecost Sunday Evening at the Columban Community Gathering in Nasese.

From Right to left, Fr Martin Koroiciri, home on holidays, form Mission in Chile, Ietawa and Matang, Columban Formation Students, Fr Felisiano Fatu, Elia Poasa, Senior student at Formation House, Saula Seeto, Columban Student home on holidays from Manila, Paula Suka, Senior Columban student at Formation House and Lanieta Tamatawale, Lay Missionary about to return to the Philippines after her holidays with her parents here in Fiji.

Fr Martin presented his sevusevu to the Columbans on his homecoming, as did Saula Seeto on behalf of Iowane Naio and Mosese Yacalevu, while Lanieta presented her iTatau before her departure to the Philippines later this week. The Missionary Spirit was aflame and active among the gathering on this Pentecost Evening. Let’s continue to pray for our Columban missionaries form the Pacific.

Missing from the Photo are Fr Pat Visanti, home on holidays from Pakistan, Iowane Naio and Mosese Yacalevu, Columban student home on holidays from Loyola School of Theology in Manila and Pio Tuari (1st year student at Formation House).

Also, for over the past three weeks we have said our farewells to Fr. Teakare and Francis Xavier who have gone to the Philipphines and not forgetting Fr. Aminiasi who had left for Peru, we thank God for their safe arrivals and ask him to watch over them as they are out on mission.
