On the 10th of July Oceania began the first Session of a 6-session virtual COP meeting over a span of 2 months and a half. Each session occurs every fortnight until the 18th of September. Two sessions have been completed. The COP was called due to the indefinite delay of the Provincial Chapter and the growing sense of disconnections from each other. The meeting is with the fervent intention that despite the grim effects of the pandemic that Oceania would continue to be on task with the life and mission of the Province.
|A later confirmation that Fr Seluini 'Akau'ola sm of Tonga was also conferred, together with Fr 'Ekuasi Manu sm, with the Royal Order of the Crown of Tonga Award. Fr Seluini has worked in Fiji for many years in the formation of young Marists for priests and brothers, and also lecturing at the Pacific Regional Seminary in Moral Theology. He returned to Tonga and worked in the Education and later for the Diocese in Communication. During these times he was the chairperson for the Tonga Democratic Movement. His later passion was coaching rugby. At the time of the investiture he was in Sydney for medical treatment. His award was a timely gift for his 90-year old mother, 'Ana 'Akau'ola.|
