June 18, 2013 7:04 pm
The new head of the Catholic Church Archbishop Peter Chong feels there’s challenging time ahead for the country and church.
Archbishop Chong told FBC News the Catholic church in particular has to adjust to the changes at national level and localize its teachings so that its followers are able to adapt to the changes spiritually.
“Fiji is in a transitional time and since independence we’ve been going through this time from colonial to post colonial with the hope of arriving at a form of governance and form of leadership and as church we have a contribution to make to that change in time. Because we are guided by the wisdom of the church’s tradition, the church’s accumulated wisdom."
Archbishop Peter Chong took up office yesterday.
