Fiji Latter-day Saint Youth Celebrate Easter with Other Christians

Youth from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined with members of other Christian denominations in Suva recently to take part in an interfaith Easter musical program.

A youth choir ― led by Salusalu Kuruvakarua and comprising 70 students from the Latter-day Saints’ Church College of Fiji ― sang several Easter hymns during the event.

Various Christian churches from Suva and Nausori participated in the program which was attended by over 3,000 members of the public.

According to coordinator, Rev James Bhagwani, this was the first time the Fiji Council of Churches has hosted such an event.

Earlier this month at the Church’s annual general conference, President Thomas S. Monson, said, “We are a worldwide Church, brothers and sisters. Our membership is found across the globe.”

“I admonish you to be good citizens of the nations in which you live and good neighbors in your communities, reaching out to those of other faiths as well as to our own. The Savior brought to this earth a message of love and goodwill to all men and women. May we ever follow His example.”
