It’s with great joy that we announce His Holiness Pope Francis has appointed Most Reverend Christopher Cardone, O.P., as Metropolitan Archbishop of Honiara in the Solomon Islands. Honiara, located on the island of Guadalcanal, is the capital of the Solomon Islands. The Archbishop of Honiara is the major prelate for the entire country.
The Kellenberg Memorial Family has supported Bishop Chris in his missionary efforts for many years. Our contributions have been primarily in the area of education. This spring we raised funds to purchase engines for the boats that the parish priests use to go from island to island.
We wish him our prayers as he embraces this new mission and ministry!
