CBC PNGSI SOCOM Commission celebrates 58th World Communication Day

Gerehu, Port Moresby: The Social Communications Commission of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands (CBC PNGSI) celebrated the World Communication Day on Sunday May 12 (Ascension Sunday) at St Charles Lwanga parish, Gerehu, stage 2.

(His Grace Archbishop Rochus Tatamai MSC with Reverend Fr Henry Natowosi OP, Reverend Fr Robert Spania MSC, Communion Minister Mr John Lavu and altar servers after mass)

Sr Daisy Anne Lisania MSC, Secretary for Social Communications gave an introductory insight to the Pope's message on 58th WCD including the theme.

The program started with a Eucharistic celebration that was presided by the Archbishop of Rabaul, his Grace Archbishop Rochus Tatamai MSC with the assistance of the two con-celebrants, the UPNG Catholic Chaplain Fr. Henry Natowosi OP and St. Charles Lwanga Parish Priest Fr Robert Spania MSC.

The Liturgy was led beautifully by the UPNG Catholic Students Association with their angelic choir.

With the WCD coinciding with not only the Ascension Sunday Celebration, but the Mother’s Day celebration as well, Archbishop Tatamai gave a touching homily reflecting on each of the events and highlighting their importance in our lives as Christians.

“Jesus ascended into heaven and now the faith is spread throughout the world and so let us not lose hope and sight of our One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith” shared Abp. Tatamai. 

For the Mother’s Day reflection, this is what Archbishop Tatamai had to say: Let us take this time to appreciate our mothers for being the backbone of our families and we continue to pray for God’s mercy and blessings upon them.

Archbishop Tatamai highlighted in his reflection on WCD that it is important that one must not let AI take over the wisdom of the heart that God has given and instead, use it for a greater purpose.

Following the mass was an enriching program that had speeches and then a demonstration of Heatpress Printing with the use of AI to spread positive messages.

Schools/groups that took part in the activities include: Sacred Heart Teachers College, Limana Vocational Training Centre, Don Bosco Technical School, Don Bosco Technological Institute, De La Salle Secondary School, La Salle Technical Secondary School, UPNG Catholic Students Association and the Parish Youth of St Charles Lwanga.

The program was co-sponsored by Lae Biscuit Company.
