About Us


Currently managed from the C.P.C. Building situated behind the Old Convent house at Puhoi.
When you drive into Puhoi and come past the Shrine, take the turnoff on the left beside the Puhoi Museum (which is just before the Historic Puhoi Church) and proceed right to the end of the driveway. The building with the cross on the apex of the roof is the C.P.C. Building.
