Every year in the Catholic Church we have a “World Day of Prayer for the sick” on February 11, which is also the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. All the experts on the life of Jesus agree that He was indeed a healer. Despite, or maybe because of, modern medicine, many of our friends who write to us asking for prayers are seeking relief from sickness and pain.

    Change the World

Your prayers and gifts are changing the world! Sharing the Gospel calls us to put ourselves at the service of the poor. Columban missionaries feed the hungry, care for the sick, teach the poor and bring the light of Christ to people in Asia, South America and the Pacific rim. Find out how together we can change the world.

One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD, and He will repay him for his good deed. — Proverbs 19:17

Adapting to the Needs of the People

The Columban Fathers is a great organization. As the role of mission changes around the world, the Columbans continue to adapt to the needs of the people they serve. Continuing to learn about where the Columbans are working via the Columban Mission magazine and talks by Columban priests reinforces our desire to give by making us more aware and appreciative of what the Columbans are doing around the world.
