Welcome to Fr Joseva Naqou CM

Last weekend we formally welcomed Fr Joseva to St Anthony’s Parish family.

At the Vigil Mass, we acknowledged the Land and its traditional custodians. We also acknowledged Joseva coming to our Parish and received his gift in the “sevu sevu” – the traditional Fijian welcome ceremony.
