Columban Calendar 2017

31st December 2016 - by Fr Denis Carter

A very Happy New Year to all our Columban friends and supporters. Copies of the popular Columban calendar 2017 are available from the Columban office.

Calendar front cover 2017
The calendar shows feast days and suggests a prayer for each month. Images focus on Columban work around the world. February is illustrated by Shay Cullen, an Irish Columban in the Philippines who rescues children from human rights abuses, particularly the sex trade. In other months, Fr Dan Troy celebrates a Baptism in China and Fr Dan O’Connor celebrates Mass in one of many desert villages served by Columbans in South-East Pakistan. The July images shows lay missionary Nathalie Marytsch and US visitors visiting a project for asylum seekers in Birmingham.
