Talofa means Hello in Samoan
On Friday, 30 June, a vanload of Sisters drove off to Melbourne Airport amid a chorus of beeps, goodbyes and even a loud bon-voyage from the Year 10 Girls, who were cheekily observing how to say goodbye Rosary Convent style from their classroom windows. Mother Mary Catherine, Sister Mary Rose, Sister Mary Anna and Sister Mary Vincent Ferrer are now in the US for a Vocations Trip, while our dear postulant Destiny is home in Samoa for a holiday.
Samoa, home to two of our Sisters and enroute to America, simply could not be passed over. We had heard so much about the ripe harvest of souls in Samoa! As zealous apostles in the footsteps of our holy father St Dominic, the Sisters flew into Apia, where they were met by the Leung-Wai family and Fr Robinson, SSPX, who had kindly agreed to accompany them on this leg of their trip.
