[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] The parish of Ampanefena and St Peter'sChurch School was in great jubilation on Thursday 22nd June 2008 , with the bamboo walled class being used as a temporary Church. The Rev Frank Andriamasy and Anselm Rabevelo along with the 2 deacons and 4 evangelists had prepared the 64 confirmation candidates and 31 baptism candidates. The school had a one day holiday due to the special yearly event in the life of the school.
The new St Peter's church has its foundations partly finished and the Rev Frank will take over as the new building Chairman replacing Rev Anselm .
The Rev Anselm also apologised to the Bishop Roger Chung Jaomalaza for signing a letter of the former Archdeacon last January 2008, who is trying to disrupt the smooth running of the Diocese with false and diffamatory accusations. Rev A Rakotovao had been accused by his parish in Ambilobe of fraudulent activities and he responded very nastily to all his Parish and to the Bishop who had transferred him to another parish. Rev Anselm acknowledged in front of the Parish Church Council that he was led astray by the lies of that disruptor and asked for forgiveness for signing the letter, which was granted to him.
