DELEGATION "MARY QUEEN OF PARADISE"
Papua New Guinea and Australia
The first evangelization of this land started almost 60 years ago, when Franciscan and Passionist missionaries came to the island. The Institute of the Incarnate Word arrived 14 years ago and located in the small Diocese of Vanimo in the north-west, very close to the border with Indonesia. Together with the Bishop, Monsignor Cesare Bonivento, the IVE fathers founded the Diocesan Seminary “Saint Charles Borromeo” responding to his request.
