 We also have a Tongan Chaplain, Father Kapiolani Katala, who lives in San Fransisco but he visits all the Tongan Communities once a month to meet their needs.

 By 1982 the Tongan community was reconized by the Diocese of San Bernardino and welcomed at St. Joseph Parish of Upland as one of its multicultural communities.

 Now there are two Tongan communities; One at St. Joseph, under the leadership of Kapelieli (Roy) Pomeé, and the other one at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Riverside under the leadership of Atunaisa Vaipulu.

 On behalf of the Tongan Community, it is my sincere gratitude, a great privilege, a heartfelt THANKS to Bishop Gerald Barnes and the Diocese of San Bernardino for the dedication, the encouragement, the support, the care and most of all the love you has shown for us people of God.

 Thank you so much with love and Prayers.
