Our Missionaries

“Let us be Christ’s not our own.”  
  ---Saint Columban


HISTORY: We were founded in Ireland in 1924. We came into existence in response to a call to help the people of China, especially the women and children. This call was heard by many women, among them former Lady Frances Moloney, a young widow of Sir Alfred Moloney, Governor of British Honduras (Belize) and later of Trinidad. Frances Moloney was searching for a way of life that would make a difference to the most needy.

A few years previously Father John Blowick, a professor at the National Seminary in Maynooth, in Ireland, joined the newly founded Maynooth Mission to China (known today as the Columban Missionary Society). He was to play a pivotal role in the founding of the Columban Missionary Sisters. Our first Sisters were sent to China as soon as they were professed. From there we spread out to different countries in the world
