 LAUNCHING OF FIJI SYNOD - PENTECOST SUNDAY,  20 May 2018

"CONNECTING WITH JESUS"
After 27 years since its last synod, the Catholic Church of Fiji through the leadership of Archbishop Peter Loy Chong, launched its synod year with an Eucharistic Celebration at the ANZ National Stadium in Suva on Pentecost Sunday, 20 May 2018.  
The Theme for the synod is "CONNECTING WITH JESUS". To be connected in Jesus is to take on the mission of the historical Jesus.
The two main focus of the synod, according to Archbishop Peter are:
  • The need to update people on the cur­rent teachings of the Church
  • Reflections on social problems, political problems, all forms of violence, the impacts of cli­mate change and globalisation.

“During this year, we will be holding semi­nars around various groups in Fiji with youth, women and men."

“Next year we will have a meeting and will formulate our plan for next short term and long term plans,” he said.
