Advent Journey has begun

December 5, 2011

Dear Columban Friend,

Our hearts are full this Advent. As we wait eagerly to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, we reflect on the many blessings we’ve received this year. And, our biggest blessing has been you and others like you.

A Community of Faith
Your prayerful and financial support of the Columban Fathers makes you our partners in mission and allows us to go and spread the Good News. Together as a community of faith, we are strong, providing care and comfort for those who live in poverty and persecution.

This Advent, Let Us Give Thanks
We are so grateful for your trust, your faith and your commitment to making a difference. We give thanks for you and your partnership with us that allowed us to help so many this year. It is your support that not only makes our work possible but also continually renews our spirits.

On behalf of the Columban Fathers, Sisters and lay missionaries around the world, thank you.

Gratefully yours in Christ,
