The Divine Word Missionaries, although present in Australia since 1900, did not begin to recruit Australians for their Missionary Congregation until after World War II. The first four who were recruited, after finishing their training, worked in Papua New Guinea. Patrick Murphy was responsible for the early development of the Major Seminary. Michael Morrison developed schools of high standing. Raymond Cashmere served both in Australia and New Guinea. Peter O'Reilly was a man of many parts in the Mission. This is their story.
