Papua New Guinea – The Salesian presence in Araimiri

15 June 2020

Araimiri, Papua New Guinea - June 1980 - On June 12, 1980, the locality of Araimiri, in Papua New Guinea, welcomed the first Salesian missionaries to arrive in the country. It was the beginning of a new work of education and evangelization, carried out by the Salesians of Don Bosco together with many volunteers from different countries. Over the years, this seed has blossomed and has given way to new presences, so much so that on December 23, 2015, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, erected the "Blessed Philip Rinaldi" Vice Province of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands (PGS), based in Port Moresby-Boroko East.
