Fr Kimi

In 2018, Chaplain Fr. Kimi commenced his role at Daramalan College, and over the course of the past six years, he has left an indelible mark on numerous students and staff, who remain forever appreciative.

You will be missed, Fr Kimi!

Why did you choose the MSC?  

I only considered becoming a MSC/priest when I was about twenty-five. My decision was inspired by the example of two MSC priests and an MSC brother that I got to know. I was drawn to the simplicity by which they lived and the impact their lives had. Yes, like anyone, they faced a few challenges and disappointments, but they were passionate and had no regrets about their life path. They were ordinary, down-to-earth people trying to make a difference through the way they chose to live. The time I got to know them coincided with a phase in my life where I was thinking about the future. I knew something had to change in my life if I was to find fulfilment beyond money and materialistic things (my greatest motivators at the time). I have no regrets about my decision to become an MSC. In fact, I have learnt more about myself through what I do. 

Why MSC? I grew up in an MSC parish in Fiji. Liked what I saw. Joined them. 

What is your advice for current students?    

Always have one or two people in your life you can talk to about anything. Friends you trust, who care for and support you, but also love you and are honest enough to tell you what you need to hear. 


What is your idea of perfect happiness?    

It’s the simple things like waking up after a great night’s sleep. Very rarely happens but when it does, absolute bliss! 

Which talent would you most like to have?    

The ability to pick up any musical instrument and play it.   

Who is your favourite hero of fiction or movie?  

Charles Xavier/Professor X
