Father Albert Kalu- his reflection on Noro Sub-Parish
What really impressed me ?
Their Faith in the Catholic Religion is evidence at their places & homes. People adhere to Catholic Faith in the midst of otherDenominations even though they are minority. Receiving a Priest to their communities is always of great joy and have been expressed in so many ways.
What I want to see in the future ?
Noro must be developed in a well set up centre and become a Parish of its own and be able to administer the Catholic communities from Ringi to Marovo, not only at Noro and Canaan.
Why I go to Sirovanga ?
As a Priest, my priestly commitment is to be ready to go anywhere my Bishop asks me to go and to respond to that mission
Noro sub-Parish lies east of Gizo and serves around 12 Catholic Communities from Ringi to Marovo and is still part of Gizo Parish. It is hoped that sooner the Bishop of Gizo will grant Parish status to Noro. Keep praying!
For the last 3 years as I reside at Noro, I carry out my Priestly Pastoral ministry in serving the people I am entrusted to care. Visiting the Catholic communities celebrating the Holy Eucharist, giving sacraments of baptism, marriage, first Holy Communion, visiting the sick, making burials, offer blessings as well as being present at their isolated homes. The Place is nice, people are really kind and supportive.
