ARCHBISHOP of the Catholic Church Bishop Christopher M Cardone was garlanded by Parishioners of Saint John the Baptist Parish at Kirakira on his first Pastoral visit to Catholic Parishes in the Makira/Ulawa Province.

Prior to his arrival he was greeted with speeches from the Church, village and the Provincial leaders before beginning his first leg of Pastoral visits to the Catholic Communities of Arohane, Tetere and Hunama Communities who gathered together at Arohane Church to welcome him.
According to his programme he will hold a Holy Eucharistic Mass at Arohane Catholic Church and offer the Sacrament of Confirmation to more than 30 new Candidates today.
He will continue his second day of visit to Manibena Community on Friday 28th April and will hold an open forum and discussion with the Parishioners.
