The Diocese Samoa Pago Pago is once again the recipient of a $67,941 charitable donation from the Lealaifuaneva Peter E. Reid Foundation. Officially presented in December, 2019, Olivia Reid informed His Excellency Bishop Peter Brown that the Foundation’s Board of Directors received and approved funding requests to complete repairs to the Fatuoaiga Cathedral ($58,590), purchase classroom fans for St. Theresa Elementary ($2,951) and purchase science equipment and furniture for Marist St. Francis Elementary ($6,400).
The philanthropic foundation has continued to help the Catholic Diocese address its repair and renovation needs throughout the years as well as provide strong support of the continued growth and development of Catholic Education. Bishop Brown expressed his thanks and appreciation to Olivia Reid and the full board of the Lealaifuaneva Peter E. Reid Foundation for their generosity and commitment to their Catholic faith as demonstrated through their charitable giving to the Catholic Diocese.
At this joyous Easter Season our Diocese celebrated the ordination of a new priest, Fr. Sagato Tavete Maugaotega, son of Deacon Tavete Maugaotega and the late Mrs Matagi Maugaotega of Asili and Tafuna.
His Mass of ordination was held on Friday, May 3 at the Holy Family Cathedral, led by Bishop Peter Brown with priests of our Diocese and some from the Diocese of Samoa-Apia, concelebrating.
Fr. Sagato spent 9 years in formation for the priesthood. He attended Redemtoris Mater Seminary in Guam and then Mt Angel Seminary in Portland, Oregon where he completed his Masters in Theology last year.
After his ordination as a Deacon last year, he was assigned to the Co-Cathedral Parish of St. Joseph the Worker where he served with Monsignor Viane Etuale.
Family and friends of Fr. Sagato both from the territory and off-island, and parishioners from throughout the Diocese showed their love and joy that this son of the Diocese has successfully completed his journey to the priesthood and at the same time offering their prayers and well wishes for what lies ahead as he begins his ministry. Fr. Sagato will offer his first Mass at 10 am, Saturday May 4 at the Holy Family Cathedral.
Bishop Peter Brown said, “This is a great blessing for our Diocese and a recognition of great sacrifice by many who have provided the opportunity for Deacon Sagato to complete his studies.
The newly ordained priest Father Sagato will be appointed to St Joseph the Worker Parish in Fagatogo as Assistant Parish Priest. The people of God will be blessed by the gift of this new priest and we pray for his ministry in our Diocese.”
