In the gallery below are more pictures of this happy occasion. Fr Joseph's first Solemn Mass of Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Walis Island on Tuesday.
2010 got off to a great start at Dominican College with the Ordination to the diaconate of one of our Solomon Island brothers, Timothy Aihora. You can see a photograph in the News blog, and lots of photos on the website of our province.
Another exciting event for us all - but especially for our Solomon Island brothers - was the visit to our college of the Solomon Islands Prime Minister, Dr Derek Sikura, his wife, Lady Doris, and a number of cabinet ministers. While a PM of Papua New Guinea has visited us before, it was the first visit to our college of a Solomon Islands PM. The picture below shows the community with the official party.

Fr Martin Wallace has been assigned to Dominican College since February, 2009.
