Opening Up the Horizons of Man to God's Kingdom
Columban missionaries seek to reach out and transform all strata of human life through our evangelizing work, opening up the horizons of humanity to the living mystery of God's kingdom, and responding to the poor and suffering where ever they may be found.
Columban mission calls us to a spirituality of listening, a life of prayer and community centered on Jesus whose presence nurtures and empowers us with a spirit of dialogue and boldness, understanding and reconciliation. We grow in contemplation and action with the support of Columban priests, sisters, lay missionaries, our companions in mission and friends, and all those whom we touch and who touch us with the gift of God's saving love.
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has sent me to bring good news to the poor.
To proclaim liberty to captives, and recovery of sight to the blind. To set the downtrodden free, and to proclaim the Lord's year of favor."
