Condolence: Fr. Augustine Mamia

I felt obliged to post this message I sent to Abp Francesco Panfilo sdb dd. "Dear Abp Francesco, it is with deep sorrow and shock that I convey my condolence to you and the priests, religious and faithful of the Archdiocese of Rabaul at the untimely death of Fr Augustine Mamia. I visited him twice at the private ward and we spoke fondly about the pastoral challenges in both Kerema and Bereina, even about the need for more priests and the call to the priesthood, sadly I did not realise these would be his last words of concern and dream. God bless his soul and may he rest in peace..please communicate any funeral arrangements so I can share with friends and benefactors. Thanks a lot for your generosity to us in Kerema and Bereina through one of your senior diocesan priests. God bless you all."
