Papua New Guinea


The flag of Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea, or PNG for short, is the eastern half of a large island above Australia.

We live about 20 minutes east of the capital city, Port Moresby.  It has a wet and a dry season and the temperature is generally in the low 80s.

We live at the Seminary compound, which includes classrooms, offices, the library, ten houses of formation for religious orders and diocesan seminarians, sports fields, and our own little house.

The library is on the right

Papua New Guinea was named by the Portuguese around 1600, who thought the people there reminded them of those they had met in the African country of Guinea.
