Fathers of Samoa in high spirits

Many churches in Samoa joined in the Father’s Day celebrations on Sunday .

At the Congregational Christian Church at Vailoa, Palauli, Savai’i, close to  a hundred fathers wore different coloured t-shirts on Sunday in line with the theme, ‘That God's mercy and grace are new every morning’. Reverend Leleimalefaga said that Father's Day is about honouring fathers and celebrating fatherhood.

“Not only that but to remind all the fathers of Palauli of their roles in families, the village and the country” he said.

“It’s about reminding them that Jesus Christ is the only name that can bring peace, love, joy and happiness to a family. He added that fathers of their church were divided into five groups.

The groups were Nu’ualofa, Tualagi, Vailoa Uta, Tailelei and Lealaoali’i and they performed skits, speeches and gospel songs during the service.

Here are some photos from the fathers of the C.C.C.S. Vailoa, Palauli and the C.C.C.S. Vaitele-Uta.
