Divine Word Missionaries?


In 1896, Rome gave the Society of the Divine Word (SVD), a new congregation founded in 1875 at Steyl in Holland, the newly erected Prefecture Apostolic of Wilhelmsland -- The area was the New Guinea mainland (Momase and Highlands), which was under German control. A Prefecture Apostolic is a mission territory under the control of a priest. The first Divine Word Missionaries under the leadership of Father Eberhard Limbrock, arrived in Madang on the 13th August, 1896.
