2021 Columban Mid-Year Appeal

‘Do not forget the poor during the coronavirus pandemic’. Pope Francis 

Last week I received news from Columban Fr Ed O’Connell with an update on the situation in Peru. He said that the COVID vaccine had arrived but it was not clear how it will be distributed and to whom. In the meantime, people continue to see little hope for the future and face lockdowns, hunger and disease. 

Fr Ed asked that I convey his thanks to you, our loyal Columban supporters, who have helped many families in Peru through the support of parish-based programs. 

I have also received reports from Columbans in the Philippines, Pakistan and Chile where some of the basic needs of people are being met because of your support. As you see in the media, people in the poorer countries of the world are still in dire straits.

I ask you to use the below options to support the Columban Mid-Year Appeal in solidarity with those who continue to live at the margins in these desperate times. 

Thanking you for responding to the needs of the poor. 

My gift to the Columbans:
