Society of Saint Francis (SSF), Solomon Islands Province

Introduction to the community

SSF friars first went to Papua New Guinea in the late 1950s. They then went on to found friaries in the Solomon Islands. The Islands became part of the Pacific Province created in 1981 and then in 2008 became a Province in its own right.
