Apia’s new cathedral to be dedicated this month

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception for the Archdiocese of Samoa-Apia will be dedicated 31 May.

Announcing the dedication ceremony on the church TV, Archbishop Alapati Lui Mataeliga thanked the church members for their continuing support in building the church.

Leading the list of overseas guests is the Popes representative in the Pacific, Archbishop Martin Krebs who is based in Wellington, New Zealand.

Built by Father Ricky Bernard and a team of local builders, the project relied on the financial support of the church members.

The dedication ceremony includes traditional presentations by various parishes and entertainment to be provided by the Catholic college students at the Tofamamao Pastoral Centre, Leauva’a.
