Challenging Structures
Changing lives

The Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach is the national advocacy office for the Missionary Society of St. Columban. The office serves as the line of communication between Columban missionaries serving in 15 countries around the world and policy makers in Washington, D.C.

Our mission is to work towards a more just, peaceful, and environmentally sustainable world by engaging in the political process guided by our faith and the Gospel.

Become An Advocate

We use Catholic Social Teaching as our lens to engage in legislative advocacy representing the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) concerns of the Columban Fathers. Our four social justice priority issues are Migration, Environmental Justice, Economic Justice, and Peace and Conflict Transformation.

Justice and peace, care for creation, and care for the poor, are at the heart of the Gospel and the Columban mission. Your support and solidarity make a difference. Together we work to ensure that everyone has a place at the table and everyone is included.
