The Work of Mission Never Ends

Planned Giving: You Can Change the World


Good intentions are important, especially when it comes to giving. And a planned gift — a gift you designate to start after your lifetime — can have long-term impact. By designating just one percent of your estate as a gift to the Columban Fathers, you insure that the work you have supported during your lifetime will continue.

Light the Life Project

Columban Lay Missionary Hyein "Anna" Noh
with candle makers.

Columban lay missionary Hyein Noh, better known as Anna (pronounced En-na), a teacher by profession, lives and works in the Philippines. After getting to know the women in her parish, and realizing how desperately poor they were, Anna, with the help of Columban benefactors, launched a candle making livelihood project called “Light the Life.” The women make candles and earn income for their families. The program also helps in the holistic development of the women, making them value their own self-worth. The women in the program make candles that light the homes of others, but they are lighting their own paths as well.
