2024 Columban Mid-Year Appeal

Dear companions in mission,

We have had a busy time over the past month. There have been two Columban ordinations. Fr Iowane Naio was ordained in Suva, Fiji, on April 10. Fr Francis Xavier La Aung Nbwi on May 1. Fr Iowane has been appointed to Pakistan, and Fr La Aung has been appointed to our Oceania region. Fr La Aung did his first mission assignment in Fiji. Our student in Fiji, Elia Poasa, has been appointed to South America for his first mission assignment.

The ordinations in Fiji and Myanmar help to remind us of the work of Columbans in Fiji, Pakistan, Myanmar and Peru. The collaborative project between the archdiocese in Mandalay and the Columban Missionaries supports the work of the Higher Education College in Myanmar. We are also committed to supporting the work of St Bernadette’s Children Centre in Peru.

Your ongoing prayers and financial support ensure that we provide for the formation of future Columban missionaries and the work of Columbans in the various countries where we live and work. In return, we can assure you of our prayers.

May God bless and keep you healthy and at peace in mind and heart.

Tom Rouse
