Church leader returns to Africa after 20 years of service


BR Theodore Pierre, CSSp, has left Diocese of Wewak for his home country Madagascar after 20 years of service to the people of PNG.
This was especially in East Sepik.
According to Wewak Diocese Bishop, Jozef Roszynski, Pierre was very well known and his work very respected and valued.
Last August, Pierre received a meritorious community service (MCS) Medal from the governor-general for his services to communities in East Sepik.
In his reflection, Pierre said: “I am proud of the Diocese of Wewak.
“I am proud to be part of this diocese to allow me to share my bread to disadvantaged people in the rural and remote areas of East Sepik.
“Until today, I have no idea who (he/she) made the recommendation on me but many disabled people, disadvantaged children and some of my colleagues called me ‘Papa Theo’.
“I am sure they are a good witness.
“One said: ‘Br Theo, quiet man, but you touched the hearts of many Sepik people including those poor women who wanted to become doctors, Nurses and teachers’.
“I would like to thank those who have supported me.
“Finally, I give praise and thanks to God for having given me the opportunity to serve the people of East Sepik, PNG, for 20 years.”
