“I really enjoy reading this excellent magazine as it has so many inspirational stories”

“Your magazine is the first Catholic publication I have been able to relate to in years”

‘Far East’ is the official 24-page magazine of the Columban Missionaries in Britain. It provides insight into the mission work of Columbans around the world and invites you to a deeper understanding of our shared call through baptism to be God’s missionaries. ‘Far East’ will help you better understand other cultures and religions, and the effects of global economics and environmental degradation on the poor and the marginalised.

Often, the stories are tragic tales of our failed human condition, the poverty, exploitation and inhumanity that mars our earthly existence. Yet, in the midst of despair, Columban missionaries live in solidarity with ordinary people and, together, they move forward to improve their social, economic and spiritual lives, always with Jesus Christ as their guide.

You are invited to participate in Columban mission by receiving ‘Far East’ into your home and sharing it with family and friends in your community.
