2010 began with the completion of the Parish Church in Kanosia, PNG. As donations became available and as the community spirit came alive, the St. Vincent de Paul Church was finally tiled, a new Altar, Tabernacle and Baptismal font were all made with local timber and the Church was ready, after 10 years, for its Blessing and Dedication. April 11th was a great day for the whole community in Kanosia and of course it was a privilege for the Marist Sisters to be part of such an historic occasion. Parishioners started arriving the day before from as far as 30km away. Pigs were brought in and cooking, dancing and music were very much part of the celebration. The ceremony itself began with an introduction outside, explaining the ritual itself, followed by a traditional procession to the Church. One of the highlights of the day was the televising of the event on Kundu Television shown throughout PNG that evening and the following Sunday.
