The Dominicans were founded by St. Dominic in 1216 to preach the truth of Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life of the world. Today, 800 years later, the Dominicans continue to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ through ministries in parishes, schools, universities as well as missionary work in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. We rely upon your generosity to help us maintain our evangelical works, fund the care of our elderly and sick friars as well as form the new generation of Dominican priests and brothers. Your assistance will help us to continue to dedicate ourselves to the missionary call of Christ to teach all nations the saving love of God.
In 1956, the first foundation of the Province's mission in the Solomon Islands was established at Nila on Poporang, one of the Shortland Islands, in the Western Province. In 1979, a foundation was made at Bomana, in Papua New Guinea. In 1985, the Provincial Vicariate of the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea was established, as the Order continued its growth in these two developing countries. In 2012, for reasons of economy, the vicariate was integrated into the province, but the hope and expectation remains that this region will eventually grow into a province in its own right. Please assist us in bringing the light and love of Christ to our brothers and sisters in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
