In November 1988 the people of Par Parish in the Enga Province of Papua New Guinea celebrated Sunday mass on the Feast of Christ the King. It was the first celebration in their new church building and they decided to celebrate it "Enga style", each clan contributing to the inculturated liturgy. This was Fr. Philip Gibbs' final mass at the parish before he went for doctoral studies. The liturgy lasted 5 hours, but it seemed that no one got tired.
