Catholic society raises K580,000


THE Papua New Guinea Catholic Professional Society (CPS) organised a successful fundraising corporate dinner in Port Moresby last Thursday raising over K580,000.
The dinner’s theme was “Together we journey in the life and love of God (called to be salt and light of today’s world)”.
Prime Minister James Marape, who was the guest of honour, reassured the church that more would be done by the Government to assist its efforts to help the people take back the country.
“The country is at a crucial point in its development and there needs to be an effective partnership between the State and the church to serve the people better,” he said.
Marape said he was looking forward to the partnership.
“I encourage the church to continue as the moral compass of the country,” he said.
“For PNG to become the richest black Christian nation, our lifestyles have to become Christian-based.”
Catholic Professional Society president Paul Harricknen said the dinner was held to raise money for the society’s two major events next year which were the Laity Convention and the Catholic Expo as well as 2021’s visit by Dr Scott Hahn.
