Responding to the Challenge

Email Print PDF
Eamon SheridanRecently Columban Eamon Sheridan travelled to Myanmar (Burma) to take up a new appointment there.
The Columbans have a long association with the people of Myanmar, a country slowly and painfully emerging from decades of a brutal military dictatorship. In 2015, the Columban General Council decided to commit a small team of priests and lay missionaries to work with the local church in Burma to help them to respond to the enormous challenges faced by the Burmese people.

Before Fr Eamon left, he shared his hopes for the work he has before him and explains why he has made this brave commitment.
