An anonymous benefactor in New Zealand has just handed over to the Marist Fathers in Wellington a sum of money to aid in the restoration of the Church of the Assumption at Ruavate in the South Solomons. The church, which has suffered severely at the hands of the Japanese, is to be restored as a memorial to the four missionaries, Frs. Duhamel and Engberink and Sisters Mary Sylvia and Mary Odilia, who were murdered by the soldiers. It has been suggested to the Vicar Apostolic IBishop Auhin, S.M.) that the church should he given a secondary dedication to the Japanese Martyrs.
