Missionary Society of St. Columban


Who are the Columban Missionaries?

Columban Fr. Tomas King celebrates Mass in a Pakistani village.

The Columbans are a society of missionaries, including priests and lay people, who minister to people of various cultures as a way of witnessing to the universal love of God.

We go in the name of the Church to announce, by deed and word, the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission:

  • To establish the Church where the Gospel has not been preached.
  • To help local Churches grow into evangelizing communities open to all peoples.
  • To facilitate interchange between local Churches.
  • To promote dialogue between Christians and those from all other religious traditions.
  • To promote justice, peace and creation from a standpoint of solidarity with the poor.

We work in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Britain, Ireland, China, Chile, Hong Kong, Fiji, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Myanmar, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Taiwan, Rome, France, Mexico and the United States.
