Dorish Maru College of the Society of Divine Word of the Australia Province, welcomes you to our residence, which is under the patronage of St. Joseph Freinademetz SVD (1852 – 1908), missionary to the Middle Kingdom of China.

We have chosen Dorish Maru College as the name for our residence as a memorial to the priests, brothers, sisters and missionary helpers who lost their lives on the ship "Yorishime Maru" off Papua New Guinea during World War II in 1944. The missionaries at that time came to know the ship by the name “Dorish Maru”.  We hope that by the commitment of our lives, we can pay a worthy tribute to those who were wounded and died on the “Dorish Maru”.

Everyone at Dorish Maru College is truly multicultural, as you will see as you browse through our website.

We welcome you to our Community.
