The Church is the People of God, the Body of Christ, the Temple of the Holy Spirit.  There is a refrain in PNG - "Yumi Sios" - "We are the Church!"  Indeed we are the Church if we are formed by Word of God, nourished by the Sacraments and sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

Still, church buildings are central to our worship of the Living and True God.  They are holy places, set apart for the celebration of the Liturgy, prayer, meditation and adoration.

There are thirty parishes and pastoral areas in the Diocese of Mendi.   They are made up of many outstations.  There are almost 350 outstations in the diocese.  The diocese is broken up into three deaneries:  the Eastern Deanery and the Central Deanery contain parishes which are located in the Southern Highlands Province.  The Western Deanery contains parishes located in the Hela Province.

The Postal Address for all parishes, unless otherwise noted, is:

P.O. Box 69
Mendi, S.H.P. 251
Papua New Guinea

The following is a listing of the parishes and pastoral areas of the Diocese of Mendi arranged in alphabetical order by place.
