Georita Memorial Church 2

O’Neill to maintain church partnerships

Speaking at the opening of the new Georita Memorial Church 2, in Maopa village, to thousands of people from around the Abau District of Central Province, the Prime Minister thanked the churches for their commitment.

“Churches are a very important part of our communities throughout the country,” PM O’Neill said on Friday.

“The churches hold our communities together and they fill in the role where governments have not been present.

“For many years after independence, the church was filling the gap that should have been filled by Government.
