Centennial Mass for the Missionary Society of St. Columban

Cardinal Blase J. Cupich will preside at the Centennial Mass for the Missionary Society of St. Columban at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Glenview. Columban missionaries were founded in 1918 for mission in China and set up their U.S. headquarters in Omaha that same year. Columbans ministered to Korean and Latino migrants in Chicago for many years and had mission houses and a seminary in Chicago until 2011. Throughout the past hundred years, a large number of Columban vocations have originated from Chicago, including Fr. Brendan O’Sullivan who was the Superior General of the Columban Missionaries from 2000 through 2006.
