Marist Ordination in Rome

On 20 February in St Peter Chanel's chapel, Domus Australia, Rome, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples ordained Fr Samuela Tukidia SM to the priesthood.

Fr Samuela's Marist vocation began in the parish of Wairiki, Taveuni, Fiji. He studied at Pacific Regional Seminary in Suva while living  nearby at Marist College and at the Marist International Scholasticate, Casa di Maria, in Rome. His parents, the late Talemo and Lucia Tukidia, were pioneer leaders of the Marriage Encounter movement in the Pacific.

In the past year as a deacon, Samuela has been a member of the Society of Mary's General House community in Rome, pursuing post-graduate studies.

Please pray for him.
