Wagina Parish- Diocese of Gizo in the Solomon Islands

Wagina Parish is located on the island of Wagina, which is a few kilometres South of Choiseul Island. It is a long, wet canoe ride from Gizo from Gizo. Occasionally it is possible to catch a flight to the South end of Choiseul and then take a canoe to Wagina. The people of Wagina are almost entirely of Kiribati origin and have successfully merged aspects of Solomons and Kiribati culture. At the moment, the Parish is served part time byone of the two Malaitan priests who are on loan from the Auki Diocese in Malaita.

Diocese of Gizo in the Solomon Islands
New priest ordained at Wagina

Wagina recently (December 2005) celebrated the Ordination to the Priesthood of Father Laurence Kimaere, the latest local Dominican to be ordained. The celebrations that his people, I-Kiribati migrants here now over 40 years, had arranged for the occasion were truly magnificent with the focus on their own unique traditional dance and song in the Liturgy and feasting and dancing in the Maneaba (Meeting House).

Wagina Kindergarten, the Best Now.

 

 

Wagina Kindergarten can now enroll more children since the new kindy school building recently completed last year, has allowed for more space.

 

    

 

The completion of the school building was the result of the commitment and leadership of people involved, and more over the people who responded and have the heart for their children's education.

The school building is described as a better school building for the children for the next decade. The school building also motivated more parents to enroll their children.
A father appreciated the two missionaries from Burma in their heart in coordinating this project to its completion, and other projects which has brought about drastic changes to Wagina parish.
