Who are the Columban Sisters


 We Columban Sisters, walking in the footsteps of our  founding women, embrace the mission of Christ in our world with enthusiasm and hope. We are inspired by St. Columban’s prayer:

” Lord. kindle our lamps that we may always shine in your presence and always receive light from you, the Light Perpetual, so that our own darkness may be overcome and the world’s darkness driven from us.”

As missionary religious women, we commit ourselves to be witnesses of God’s love at compassion at every stage of our lives wherever we are. we commit ourselves to be contemplative and prophetic in all we are and in all we do.

We accept that this will often entail a journey through the darkness of letting go and taking risks, so that we may promote life together work for the transformation of our world.
