Induction ceremony of Pre-Novices 2022.
The Provincial, Fr Tamati Sefo, and the members of the MSC Province of the Pacific Islands welcomed the Pre-Novices of 2022 with an Induction ceremony at Sacred Heart House, on Monday night the 28th of March 2022. There are two candidates from FIji - Lloyd Kamali and Vincent Petero, and three from Kiribati - Kourabi Mweretaka, Ieiera Tiamuera and Rataro Teimauri Timiti.
Their classes and zoom sessions started about four weeks ago. The three Pre-novices from Kiribati arrived in Nadi on Friday, 25th of March and went into isolation for three days at the Nasau Resort in Nadi.
In his speech, Fr Tamati expressed his warm welcome and reminded them of their journey of discernment in the coming months, and to be open to God and to allow themselves to journey together with their formator and director.
Br Tebweao also arrived with the pre-novices from Kiribati and is in Fiji for medical checkups. In the meantime Br Tebweao will journey with these young men alongside Br Colin and Fr Pone at the Pre-Novitiate in Wailoku.
