THE six women vying for the Miss Pacific Islands Pageant PNG crown began their contest on Sunday with a church service at the St John’s Anglican Church in Port Moresby.
Deputy chairperson of MPIP in PNG Molly Rau O’Rourke said it was traditional to start the pageant on a Sunday.
The church service was led by Bishop Denny Bray Guka who emphasised the importance of prayer in a person’s life.
O’Rourke said after the church service the contestants had picked their order of appearance and their topics for the week.
Topics covered issues affecting the nation and the region because the pageant was based in the Pacific region.
This week’s activities for the contestants include a visit to the Blood Bank, visit to the Buk Bilong Pikinini and reading to the children, a visit to the Museum and Art Gallery, and a visit to the Maternity Ward at the Port Moresby General Hospital.
It is the 30th anniversary of the Miss Pacific Islands Pageant which began in Samoa.
The theme this year is “Celebrating our history and embracing our future”.
Miss PNG will be crowned on Saturday.
