Are you being called to serve God and the world
with the Columban missionaries?
Here you can find out more about the opportunities available for participating in Columban mission to help you discern how God is calling you to be a ‘missionary disciple’ of Jesus Christ.
You are welcome to contact us for more information and we will listen carefully to your questions.
As a Priest
Columban missionary priests integrate ordained ministry within the Christian community with outreach beyond the boundaries of the Church. They are committed to a life of Christian discipleship, prayer and service of others.
As a Lay Missionary
Columban Lay Missionaries are an intercultural group of women and men, single and married, called to respond to God’s mission by crossing boundaries of culture, gender, creed and race.
Invitation to Mission
The Columban ‘Invitation to Mission Programme’ is now into its 5th year.
So far, 32 people have taken part in this learning experience, growing in faith and understanding through preparation in the UK, a 10-day visit overseas and follow up on return. We have also received in Britain a visiting group of 10 people from the USA.
