Arthur Solomon

“At Marist Brothers High School Suva, Brothers Eugene and Columba took me under their wings and gave me work each Saturday for my school fees. During the school holidays I was paid extra for myself to help my family. It was through Br Eugene’s support that I left Fiji to become a Marist Brother. I was a Marist Brother for eight years. I have a deep sense of gratitude to these two men and the Marist Brothers Family.”   Arthur Solomon
