Hundreds Pay Tribute  to Long-Serving Sister Of St Christopher’s Home
The late Sister Litia Voli

One of St Christopher’s Home’s longest-serving sisters was remembered yesterday for being a mother-like figure and for the impact she had on the orphanage’s residents.

Sister Litia Voli, who died after a long illness, served at the orphanage for 44 years.

Hundreds turned up to the home at Naulu, Nasinu, to pay tribute to a woman who found her calling serving and looking after abandoned children.

Father Wame Tukuna of St Marks Anglican Church in Newtown, a close friend of Sister Voli, said she was a woman full of life who never complained and would do anything for the upbringing of the children.

“She knew God’s calling in her life and she served with all her heart and to the best of her ability,” Father Tukuna said.

“She nurtured and taught her children skills and to have a fullness of life because she wanted to see them grow up and conquer the world with whatever life threw at them.”

She was originally from Kasavu in Savusavu.
