The sun was out as people from around the diocese gathered for this year’s Diocesan Family Day.
For a third year, the diocesan family was once again drawn together at St Brendan’s College, Brislington, for a day celebrating the Diocese’s real sense of belonging. With a vast variety of workshops, keynote speakers and activities for all ages on display, the fine weather led to a fantastic day enjoyed by all. The day brought many groups, communities and organisations within the diocese together, putting themselves and their work on display to enable many to find out more of how they service the people of Clifton.
CAFOD held a stall, with many children enjoying the free balloons and pencils on offer. Many adults were keen to find out about campaigns such as Power to Be, which is currently being run by CAFOD, encouraging the support of local, renewable energy around the world to transform the lives of the poorest communities.
CAFOD volunteers Irene Prentice, Mike Honan and Sr Marie Hennessey ran the stall for the day, which was great – many thanks to them and all the volunteers and supporters who visited the stall on the day.
