Diocese of Gizo in the Solomon Islands
On the 5th of June 2004, two Deacons were ordained by Bishop Bernard O'Grady in St. Peter's Cathedral, Gizo. Albert and Geoffrey are "on loan" to Gizo Diocese from the Auki Diocese in Malaita. They will be in the Gizo Diocese for approximately five years. All going well, they will return home briefly at the end of the year for their ordination to the Priesthood.
Albert and Geoffrey have been working in the community and have been well received. The Cathedral was packed to overflowing for the beautiful ceremony. Local people worked very hard to decorate the Church and prepared a magnificent feast.
Pan Pipers from Vanga College performed for the processional and recessional parts of the ceremony. Kiribati children performed the Offertory and there was a fine choir. We show here a few scenes from the colourful and happy event.
