WHO WE ARE

MISSION FROM AROUND THE WORLD

 

“We are not here to convert China, but to do God’s will and we do not know 24 hours ahead what that is.”

 

These were the words of Edward Galvin, founder of the Columban Missionary Society, as the first missionaries set out in 1920 to live and walk alongside the poor and struggling people of China, who were troubled daily by political turmoil and natural disasters.

 

Never could they have foreseen the rapid expansion of the Society that is today working in fourteen countries across Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific, in places and circumstances which are the modern equivalent of the challenges faced in China almost 100 years ago.

WHAT WE DO

MISSION IN THE PHILIPPINES

 

We are priests, sisters and lay missionaries who consider walking with the poor and taking care of all of God’s creation as essential elements of our missionary commitment to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the past, we came to build the local Church. We went to Manila, Rizal, Cavite, Pangasinan, Zambales, Misamis, Lanao, Negros, Agusan and Zamboanga building churches, schools and organizing communities.

 

Today, we help the local Church become more missionary.

 

Columbans now work in various ministries including:

 
  • Parish ministry like Our Lady of Remedies Parish (Malate, Manila) and Immaculate Conception Parish (Don Victoriano Chiongbian, Misamis Occidental)

     
  • Interreligious Dialogue in Cagayan de Oro City

     
  • Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation

     
  • University Chaplaincy
