It will be a Palm Sunday to remember for the children at Wailevu Methodist Church after they presented their new Sunday school uniforms to the congregation at Wailevu Village in Labasa yesterday.

Sunday school teacher Lia Radianirova was overflowing with gratitude toward overseas relatives who gave towards the purchase of the Sunday school uniforms.

“The teachers thanked the relatives, especially Unaisi Lekenaua and Nanise Caginimua, for sending money to the teachers for the material and monograms for the uniforms,” Mrs Radianirova said.

She said the idea of acquiring new uniforms was realised after a Sunday School meeting last October at Wainisevu Circuit School in Bua.

Mrs Radianirova said durig the meeting Methodist Church Sunday school director Reverend Sainimere Degei highlighted the possibility of Sunday school pupils wearing uniforms every Sunday to church.

She said after the meeting the Sunday school teachers started fundraising and sought relatives overseas to contribute.

Mrs Radianirova said it was a key opportunity for young children to share with the congregation Biblical teachings and their role as messengers, especially as the focus was on them going forward to the world to share the message of God.

“The main significance of Palm Sunday, if you look back in the Bible, is that children were also in the crowd when Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem,” she said.

“Sometimes we have a whole lot of children who participate specifically for Palm Sunday and this is also the first time for our circuit to be in Sunday school uniform.”

She said the challenge in attendance was the time constraints faced by parents in getting their children to Sunday school classes, which was held ahead of the main church service. The Wailevu Village church service was one among the many in the country that marked Palm Sunday.
