of the heart

We are delighted to be working with the Columban Mission Society during their centennial year.

 

As part of the Columban Mission Society's commemorative activities to mark their centenary of service to the world, there is an exciting journey to the mission sites and towns where Columbans first worked in China. We will also visit the vibrant metropolises of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.

In many of these places, such as Wuhan, Xiantao and Nanfeng, we will be able to visit vibrant Chinese Catholic communities. There we will witness how the seeds of faith that were nourished by those intrepid young Columbans decades ago have continued to thrive and to grow.

We will also immerse ourselves in many of China's great beauties and wonders. We will climb the Great Wall, walk down fresh food markets, attend mass in local churches and feast on great delicacies. We will catch highspeeed trains as well as wander by the banks of the mighty Yangtze.

 

Travel to China with the Columbans is at once a commemorative pilgrimage and a journey for the senses.

Sino-Immersions and the Columban Mission Society have put together a stress-free package that allows you to join in this great adventure and this time of celebration.
