Holy Family parish in Swindon had another excellent display board for their CAFOD Harvest Fast Day collection this year. CAFOD parish volunteer Margaret Evans put the display together – great work Margaret!
On Sunday the 12th of August 29 people from St Benedict’s parish including 6 monks braved the elements to take part in a CAFOD Share the Journey walk. This year Pope Francis has encouraged us all to ‘welcome our brother and sister migrants and refugees with arms wide open’ and to call on world leaders to do the same when they finalise two new global agreements at the United Nations: one on refugees and one on migration.
St Therese parishioner Doug Lowe who has supported CAFOD for the past 25 years recently gave a CAFOD presentation about CAFOD’s work and Share the Journey. Doug who has managed CAFOD’s work at the Greenbelt Festival as one of his many volunteering roles for CAFOD, along with running many CAFOD events in and around Taunton, travelled to Mere for a Churches Together Annual General Meeting.
