St. Fidelis Seminary – A First Look

After my last post recalling my long and frustrating travel adventure to Papua New Guinea, I thought I owed you something more pleasing about being here.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t expecting this particular trip to Catholic HQ (Offices of the Archdiocese of Madang) and the use of the internet here.  I’ll be better prepared for a full report next time.

In the meantime, the slideshow above of random photos that I’ve taken this first week should give you some hints about the lush tropical environment and the environs of the St. Fidelis Seminary.

It’s pretty quiet these days with more than a month until the students arrive for the next school year.  I expect some more lively reports to come.

  1. Looks beautiful, Steve! I noticed the open windows… what’s the temp/humidity like there this time of year (or is it the same throughout the year)?

    • Very hot – about 95 degrees F everyday and very humid. Happily it does cool off at night enough that with the ceiling fan in my room going I get just a little bit chilly. I’m now on a first name basis with every kind of sweat. That being said, shorts and sandals every day of the year is not going to be that hard to get used to.

  2. Thanks for sharing all these pictures, Steve! It is great for us to have these mental images as to your surroundings… keep ’em coming! Blog posts too… we look forward to every one!

  3. Absolutely beautiful, Steve! Your pictures truly show just how universal our Catholic church is! Thanks for sharing these! And enjoy being on Island Time! 😀
