There are 18 missionaries in the Region of Japan, 16 are priests and 2 are lay missionaries. These missionaries come from seven different countries: Ireland, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand,the Philippines, Korea and Vietnam. Pastoral Evangelization is at the core of the Columban presence Japan.  To evangelize is to bring the ˇ§Good Newsˇ¨.  And to be pastoral is to care for others, especially the lost and the broken. So pastoral evangelizing is conveying to those who need caring so that they are cared for with an unimaginable care that can only come from God.  This takes place in parishes, through dialogue with people from other religions,through caring for our environment and by crossing barriers of culture and language.


The  Regional Director is Fr Leo Schumacher
