Marist presence in fascinating places

11/05/2004: Malaysia

The District of Melanesia is comprised of four countries: Papua New Guinea (178,260 sq. mi., population of 5,000,000), The Solomon Islands (11,500 sq. mi., population 478,000), New Caledonia (7367 sq. mi., population 225,000), and Vanuatu (5700 sq. mi., population 207,000).

This Marist District was established in December 8, 2003. Although it is assisted by both Australian Provinces, it is technically part of the Administrative Unit of Sydney. It has 64 brothers in 11 communities. The District Superior is Brother Brendan Neily.
As with all the lands of the Central and South Pacific, these islands are breathtaking in their natural beauty. Presenting the Good News of Jesus within the process of inculturation presents quite a challenge in this mosaic of cultures and languages. Educating children and young people, especially those in greatest need, is a Marist priority.
