Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Dear Columban Advocate,

As we approach the holiday season and the end of 2016, we want to take this time to say thank you!

Together we encountered many challenges this past year from increased climate change-related disasters to the escalating international refugee crisis.

In the face of these and other continuing challenges, we thank you for your commitment to the Columban mission through your advocacy and solidarity.

Thank you for raising your voice to advocate for policies and practices that uphold the dignity of Columban communities and creation both around the world and here at home.

We look to 2017 with the words of St. Columban in mind:

“Be submissive to good, unbending to evil, gentle in generosity, untiring in love, just in all things.”

Stay tuned in the New Year for ways to be involved and strengthen the Columban voice in the year to come!

From the Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach family to yours: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Blessings,

Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach
