A huge number of Christians at the Gaobata Parish turned out to witness the transfiguration day at Kolina-1 in Guadalcanal.
During the celebrations 40 candidates received the sacrament of confirmation and induction of Gaobata Parish catechists which was done by Dioceses Bishop Nathan Tome.
The event was held on Saturday, August 4, 2018.
Bishop Tome in his sermon highlighted the importance and significance of change in society.
“Light come to the world by Jesus at the cross of Calvary hence if we want to see others change we must change our selves first before changing others.
“With that the work of darkness must be thrown away, some the works including swearing, stealing, jealousy and the list goes on by doing this we are destroying the darkness that trapped within us and it will be replaced by the light which is Jesus.”
Tome congratulated the parish for having faith in doing church activities that they are mandated to carry out.
It was a weekend of celebration which began on Friday with a sacrament of penance for the confirmation of the 40 candidates.
On August 4 they held a sacrament of confirmation, followed by transfiguration celebration which was held on Sunday.
