Moli New Church Building Progressing.

 

Moli Church Building is progressing well, despite the delayed deployment of all the finishing materials from Honiara and in the bush to the island.

 

      

 

So much so, I would like to thank the people for their contribution of trees, and especially for their “heavy human power”, to carry all the timbers from the bush to the sea which was the most difficult part of the work.

 

Special thanks to the constructor Sebastian and his workers for being patient, because their payment depends very much on the stages and these stages depends on how the people work and how long the material from Honiara are delivered.

The three Solomon Island Catholic Bishops joined the main celebrant, Bishop Emeritus Bernard O’Grady in the blessing of the church and the newly constructed buildings of the Diocesan Compound. Civil authorities and many guests graced the occasion which started Saturday night with a ‘"remembering the history, renewing the present challenges and envisioning for the future".

 

 

The great Solomon spirit of cultural joy was very visible together with the commitment to make the occasion an occasion of grace and not of sin.

 

It was a real experience of faith and brotherhood where all barriers fall and everyone feels thankful for the past, inspired by the present enthusiasm and looks forward with courage to a fruitful future in building the kingdom of God as best as we can, here on earth, in spite of our limitations, failures and shortcomings.

We take this opportunity to thanks the many benefactors around the world that made our post-tsunami reconstruction a reality in Gizo and other parts of the diocese. We look at the future with confidence and are ready to reach out courageously to the Choiseul province.

 

 

The Catholic Diocese of Gizo renews its commitment to join all other national initiatives and organizations to build those values that will make our nation a truly Christian one not in words but in deeds of truth, charity, love peace and Justice, through the evangelization and education of our whole population and our youth in particular into Good Christians and honest citizens.
