  • To administer Mass Intentions and offerings
  • To process and administer Donations you make to Columban mission
  • To respond to your enquiries about becoming a Columban priest or lay missionary

In each case we make the purpose of collecting your data clear. Also, you can be sure that 

  • We don’t store any of your data on this website.
  • Any information provided via a form is sent directly to the person(s) involved in handling your query.
  • Data is kept in a secure location and only for as long as necessary.
