St Gerard’s,Thrybergh, slurp soup to support CAFOD

St Gerard’s,Thrybergh, slurp soup to support CAFODAngela Powell joined parishioners of St Gerard’s, Thrybergh for Mass and a lunch of soup & bread.  This was an opportunity to thank the group for their loyal support of CAFOD over the years, and to feedback on the impact of donations raised by soup lunches and other parish activies.  Angela talked about how CAFOD was working across the diocese in parishes and school communities helping to change attitudes and lifestyles for the alleviation of poverty and suffering of all.  Thanks to the prayers, wealth-sharing and campaigning work in Hallam, CAFOD is able to work in partnership with some of the poorest communities around the world.  Together we are helping to improve access to food, water, education and health.  Angela emphasized that all of the work is about living out our Catholic faith and social teaching and that our experience of faith is enriched by our engagement with church partners and other well organised community groups around the world.
