The Archdiocese of Suva, led by His Grace, Archbishop Peter Loy Chong, held the 2016 Mercy Congress at the Vodafone Arena on April 2-3, 2016. The two-day event was attended by both Catholics and non-Catholics coming from all over Fiji Islands. It was divided into four wonderful and meaningful talks about "mercy": Gaze at the God of Mercy (Archbishop Peter Loy Chong), Gaze at Mercy in the Heart of Every Human Being (Fr Frank Hoare, SSC), The Church of Mercy (Fr Donal McIlraith, SSC) and The Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy (Archbishop Peter Loy Chong). In between the talks were the different intermission items from the different youth groups in the archdiocese and the different sharing of experiences by varied invited sharers. We thank the youths of St Pius X parish who volunteered to prepare and present an item during the congress.
The Mercy congress culminated with a Procession from the Marist Brothers' Highschool to the FMF Dome on Sunday afternoon, 3 April. After the procession, the Archbishop celebrated a Mass with the thousands of faithful who came.
