Aipo Rongo

7 April 2011

Welcome to the Diocese of Aipo Rongo! The largest in PNG, we support 33 parishes with many of them inaccessible by road or plane. Infrastructure and communications are the two major challenges we face. Although the country is gradually changing, many people still live in small villages making a living from subsistence agriculture. Health issues including HIV/AIDS and illiteracy are a major concern. Therefore as a Church we have a three-fold mission: ministry, education and health.
