We are the Columban
Missionaries in Britain

The Society of St. Columban is an international Catholic missionary organisation centred on the Eucharist that crosses boundaries of culture and religion to reveal, by word and by action, the Good News of Jesus Christ. We participate in God’s mission and help to establish a world of peace with justice and care for the integrity of creation in solidarity with poor, exploited and marginalised communities.

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
