100 Points of Light - 1998


In the 1990s, use of the World Wide Web and Internet was increasing exponentially worldwide. Businesses, non-profit organizations, and the general public were discovering this exciting new medium and all of its potential.

In January 1998, the Columbans began the first website for their organization. Over the years, the website became more developed, complex, and advanced, mirroring the development and advancement of the Internet in general.

The various Columban websites have expanded to include articles, news, photographs, and much more.

With the aid of Columban staff, the websites continue to serve as a way for spreading news throughout the far-flung Columban missions, and connecting the worldwide Columban community.
