In 1922, at the Vatican’s request, one Salesian bishop, four priests, and three brothers arrived in Broome, Australia — persevering through decades of challenging circumstances to establish schools, youth centers and formation houses around the country. Today, more than one hundred priests and brothers operate 60 programs — including schools, health clinics, rural development initiatives, and vocational training centers — in 15 different locations throughout Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, the Solomon Islands and Timor Leste.

*Any goods, services, or funds provided by Salesian Missions to programs located in this country were administered in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including sanctions administered by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control.
