Anniversary of death of Apisai Tovata

Tuesday 16th October is the first anniversary of the death of Apisai Tovata, a seminarian of the Archdiocese of Suva who passed away in the Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva just two days after admission with a serious heart attack. His sudden and unexpected death was a great shock to the whole seminary community since h had seemed to be a man who keep himself physically fit. He was much missed being the best musician in the seminary at that time and he was a natural leader.
