Fakame - White Sunday

Fakame celebrations with our Awesome Kids

The first Sunday in May is Fakame (White Sunday) in Tonga. We acknowledged and celebrated Fakame with Andrew and Spencer, Netili and Tomas. Spencer carried the special candle up to the front, and Andrew lit it (with some help from his dad), and their mum and dad said some special prayers.

Here is Rev Neti explaining Fakame:

Richard told the story from the bible of The Road to Emmaus, then we went on our own "Emmaus walk" around the neighbourhood. Click here to watch a video of our walk.
