Visitors marvel at Mulivai Cathedral
A New Zealand couple will join Catholic faithful at the Mulivai Cathedral in Apia on Sunday in order to see the singing and to admire its design.
Identifying themselves as only Blair and Clare, who live in the New Zealand capital Wellington, they said they were in awe at the exterior and interior design of the Catholic Church cathedral as well as the singing by a local choir group.
They said they are familiar with Samoan culture, based on their experiences living in New Zealand, but seeing the singing in the cathedral was one experience they don’t want to miss.
"I am quite familiar with the Samoan culture from back home. Tomorrow we will be going to the Catholic Cathedral to enjoy the singing," Blair told Samoa Observer. "We went to one of the local churches last time we were here and we seriously enjoyed that. The inside of the cathedrals here are magnificent.”
Blair added that he visited one of the local churches in Samoa and enjoyed the experience and is looking forward to returning to the cathedral.
"We went to one of the local churches last time we were here and we seriously enjoyed that. The inside of the cathedrals here are magnificent.”
When the couple last visited the cathedral, coincidentally there was a wedding on, compelling them to witness the nuptials.
"It was really magnificent. We were lucky enough because someone was having a wedding so we sat at the back," Blair added.
The couple are currently checked in at the Taumeasina Island Resort with Blair full of praise for the resort, its staff and their customer service.
"We have really enjoyed this resort and that's probably made us more interested in returning again to this particular resort. At the moment this is the place to be at. It's a nice size and very pleasant. We enjoy the Samoan people," he added.
