He and his colleagues from Rome and Australia were welcomed with a powhiri by the school.
Fr Artime said he was impressed that there are 42 cultures represented at the school. The children
were fascinated to hear him speaking Italian!
Parish priest Fr Mika Leilua and his assistant, Fr Aleki Piula, members of the Salesian congregation, accompanied the rector major.

  1. Regrettably, one has to continue to doubt that Catholicity will be the dominant culture of the school.
    The worship of diversity (multi-culturalism) has been a significant factor in the decline of Catholicity.
