The honour, the Order of the Star of Melanesia, is part of PNG’s own national honours and awards system known as The Orders of Papua New Guinea.

Fr Don says he is humbled to receive the honour, which could have been bestowed on so many of his confreres and other colleagues living and working in PNG.

“I feel very humbled by it,” he says. “So many have done more than I have and their work hasn’t been recognised.

“So I receive it on behalf of the SVDs who have worked so long and their work hasn’t been recognised.”
