Moli St. Joseph Parish Celebrate Easter Peacefully


St. Joseph parish Moli Choiseul celebrated their Easter as one of the most peaceful one this year. The peace event has gathered parishioners from five big villages and many small locations together for the Holy week.

On   the   Easter   Vigil,   celebration was supposed   to be on 8 pm but began on 5 pm.   Because   of   the population of about 2000 and the mission, station is an island, which is in the center of those villages, other villages have to travel more than an hour and parishioners have to cross by boat to the church.
