Members of the Methodist Church today commemorated Father's Day in churches across the country.

Speaking to FijiLive, the new general secretary of the Methodist church of Fiji and Rotuma, Reverend Tevita Nawadra said that the theme for this year’s Father’s Day- "Good Family For Better Congregation" is well suited during a time like this.

He also reiterated about the importance of having a father in an individual’s life.

“We often see our fathers as our backbones, the person who gives us identity, makes sure that we have food on our tables and certainly teaches us the value of relationships and the importance of love”, Nawadra said.

He also said fathers deserve equal love and respect as other individuals.

Meanwhile, FijiLive was able to catch up with the Narayan family at Suva point today.

A building contractor, Janesh Narayan, 32, said that the importance of Father’s Day to him was only to have his father by his side.

“I love my father and it is important for me to always have him because I have not spent a single day without him”, Narayan said.
