A fun CAFOD Harvest Supper at Corpus Christi Weston super Mare
Will their patience be rewarded?
On Saturday 2nd Sept, Corpus Christi Parish held its now customary Harvest Supper to raise funds for CAFOD.
Pauline Duffin worked miracles with publicity, selling tickets all 80 tickets and filling the hall to capacity. Lynne Parsonage and her team of helpers served a sumptuous meal with a “Taste of Somerset” theme. Parish CAFOD volunteer Chris Davies reported “We are indebted to the parish through Joseph Burke for providing the cider which completed the Somerset theme. Canon Richard said grace at the start of the meal, but was later disappointed that, despite having bought some raffle tickets, he failed to win a prize!”
There was a great supply of raffle prizes.
There was a lovely thanksgiving mass for CAFOD supporters and benefactors of the Bath Deanery on earlier this year.
CAFOD volunteer Area Coordinator for the Bath Deanery, Irene Prentice reports: “About 20 people attended, including Paul Lane (St. Benedict’s) and Maureen Millman (St Joseph’s, Peasedown). Despite the short notice, it was good that so many made the effort to come to the church hall for fruit cake (that I baked for the occasion, biscuits, coffee and tea).
Next year, we will plan a month in advance and invite others from further afield who wish to come to Bath for the day”.

A lovely day of fun and feasting in aid of CAFOD
Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the Woodchester Priory CAFOD Group helped one of their members, Tina Hathaway, to host her annual Vintage Teas in her lovely garden not far from Nailsworth. CAFOF Parish Volunteer Angela Middleditch reports : “We were blessed with a reasonable weather for both days and over the two days, about 150 people came to support us. Donations and the proceeds from the raffle were given half to CAFOD, and the other half going to another worthy charity. Many thanks to all who helped with baking beforehand and helping over the weekend, to all our lovely ‘customers’ and most of all to Tina and Barry for the use of their house and garden”.
