Keeping Christ at the Center
On a small island in the South Pacific, Ivona Mauga has been doing her part to keep the Catholic faith alive and thriving. A mother of 10, she began serving the diocese as secretary to the bishop in 1987. Since then, she has become the chancellor, an immigration liaison officer and tribunal administrator assisting in annulment cases and helping couples reconcile their marriages in the Church. Mauga’s contributions don’t end there. As president of the Eucharistic League, Mauga promotes adoration and Catholics who attend regularly express their experience of renewal in Christ’s presence. Her work with the youth and the Angel Choir has been building faith for the next generation of the Church.
