More than 800 people gathered at the Nausori Catholic Parish yesterday to commemorate its 50th year of existence.

Since its establishment in 1968, the church has been growing said Leone Vakarusaqoli, the chairperson for the 50 years jubilee celebration committee.

He said the main objective was to commemorate the faith’s  journey and they are looking forward to what the future holds for the church.

With the theme ‘Concern into action’, Mr Vakarusaqoli  said: “If you are concerned about an agenda example gender violence or injustice then do something about it, don’t sympathise with it, be an empathiser.”

He said the church used to be under the leadership of the other centres and then the members grew so they were authorised to establish a parish of its own.

The day started with a mass and ended with entertainment from members all over the country and some from overseas, including the United States of America, New Zealand and others countries as well.
