Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea

 

Upon the invitation of the late Archbishop Peter Korungku, the Canossian Sisters came to Papua New Guinea in 1992 for  evangelization through coordinating the Religious Education Program in the Archdiocese of Port Moresby, in Pastoral Care of the Sick by providing health care services to the poor at St. Therese Clinic and in the settlement areas.  They used to stay in an apartment in Gordon, Port Morseby.  When the need for a vocational school for women emerged, Canossa School of Life (CSL) was established in1998 in a sprawling space in  Bomana.  It offered  skills training and promotion of women with human and spiritual formation.  It produced many graduates that gave more opportunities for them to find better jobs.  Later in 2010,  when fewer enrolees turned out, CSL answered to another emerging need and it was transformed into a Sacred Heart Teacher College by the Archdiocese and its four suffragan Dioceses to train primary teachers for their respective  remote villages in the Southern Region of Papua New Guinea.  Its first graduates got their certificates in 2012 that qualified them to teach in their respective villages. The silver anniversary celebration of the community on September, 2017 was a jubilee of thanksgiving for the many opportunities, transformations and blessings it has experienced through events,  the local people, the Church of priests, religious and lay throughout these years of making Jesus known and loved.
