COLUMBANS: PRIESTS OF THE PEOPLE

The nature of the society’s mission has always leaned on what the local church needs in concurrence with the political and social climate of the country. From sacramental work into building communities, the mission later involved working for justice, peace and social action.

At the same time, I am praying for them that God will give them more courage to continue living.

ROLLING "KIMBAP", ROLLING FRIENDSHIPS

by Anonymous — Aug 28, 2019 07:43 AM
