Priestly challenge

Normal, Sports

Standing in front of the altars every Sundays is a vocation from God. And these priests from the Catholic Church of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands have taken up the calling of God to spread the Word to every human race. However, apart from preaching and spreading the Word, these priests showed that they had other hidden talents – taking the Word of God onto the sporting fields. Our photographer AURI EVA caught up with them winding up their retreat with some sporting activities outside Bomana Theological Institute outside Port Moresby on Sunday.
