Salesian Samoan Choir
About 15 youth from Fr Mika Leilua's Salesian parish

the hall, after Mass we pray the rosary, hold our meeting, then enjoy

Meetings focus on a variety of
things such as: how to improve the choir, our Salesian relationship with the
diocese of Melbourne, preparing Samoan and western dances for June 1
Independence Day and for our trip to Moamoa, and involving the youth.
