Columban Centre for Advocacy & Outreach
The Columban Centre for Advocacy and Outreach (CCAO) 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 17 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.
The CCAO welcomes you to the Columban Mission in a variety of ways, including internships, volunteer work and exposure trips.
