Celebrating 50 years of service…St Vincent de Paul Parish, Nausori, Fiji
From Fr. Vincent Manehoua CM PP…The celebration of the 50th years Golden Jubilee was a successful and a joyful event. We celebrated for three days! I [only] noticed that we were in the 50th year the Parish when I cleaned up the store room currently used by St Vincent De Paul society.
The celebration started on the Feast Day of St Vincent and main focused was on the life of St Vincent. We had presentations of the Parish History, the Vincentians Fathers and Brothers, the Daughters of Charity, the Association of the Miraculous Medal, the Society of St Vincent, Young Vinnies and the Vincentian Marian Youth that evening.
On Friday we have Parish History, all commissions and Associations. On Saturday the Golden Jubilee celebration together with feast day on Sunday. Our main celebrant for the day was Fr Frank Hoare, Columban plus 14 other priests.
The turn up was really good and so much food was prepared.
Happy Feast Day of St Vincent de Paul
“to make God known to the poor; to announce Jesus Christ to them; to tell them that the kingdom of heaven is at hand!…Great reasons have we, my brothers, to praise God and to thank him unceasingly for this grace.” St Vincent De Paul on the mission of the Congregation.

Visit of Joe Agostino CM and Pam Mantuhac to the Asia-Pacific Region
These two directors of the Vincentian Family came to speak to its members in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Fiji. For most of us it was the first chance to understand the fulness of the message of FAMVIN, both in its theology and in its praxis. In all the places visited in Oceania both Joe and Pam were a delight to host. Thanks for the energy given and the formation. Here are some pictures from the Solomon Islands and Fiji.
