We, the Catholic Bishops of Papua New Guinea wish to appeal to the faith of the people and their moral conscience to elect good leaders that will represent their hopes and aspirations during National Election in 2017.
Seventeen Catholic Bishops of Papua New Guinea and one Administrator from the Solomon Islands attended the 58th Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Port Moresby 25th April – 4th May 2017.

It's not a true PNG Highlands celebration if there's not a mumu! For the uninitiated, a mumu is a traditional way of cooking, especially pork, vegetables and greens in an earthen oven.

The Golden Jubilee celebrations continued on 8 December, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, with the rededication of the Cathedral in Mendi.
