In the countries where we work, Columban Missionaries work with people of different cultures, languages and religions. We have been members of different Churches and communities where we have established many friendships and peaceful connections. Part of our vocation is to bring peoples to peoples, and to build bridges of sympathy between our people at home and peoples afar whom we've come to love and admire.
Most people around the globe share the same joys and anxieties, but many fear the strange and the different and often see danger where there is difference. In Australia and New Zealand much of our work, in our publications and talks, is to help educate people's understanding and appreciation of the peoples with whom we have worked with in Asia, the Americas and Fiji.
