Cardinal Ribat acknowledged his role within the Catholic Church in the region.

Meantime, Governor Bird has thanked the Catholic Church on behalf of his people for what the church has done for the province.
Bird said East Sepik owed much of its development to the Catholic Church.
On Monday, the Cardinal visited the Maprik deanery, and later this week he will be in Angoram before returning to Port Moresby on Saturday.
