Remember Our Missionaries This Christmas Season

Christmas reminds us to give of ourselves and to be thankful for the many blessings and gifts God bestows to us. As you remember family and friends this year, please also remember that your tax-deductible Christmas gift to the Columbans enables you to become a partner in mission. Your gift can help Columban missionaries continue to bring Jesus Christ’s message of love and forgiveness to some of the poorest of our brothers and sisters. Simply put your donation in the envelope enclosed in this magazine and send it to us today. Or, you can make a donation online through our secure website: www. columban.org Also, watch the mail for your free 2012 Columban calendar! You can order additional copies for yourself or loved ones by writing to us or sending an email to: missionoffice@columban.org. Columban missionaries around the world wish you a joyous and peaceful Christmas season!
