The Bishop of Salford is to visit Sheffield to speak to local people about his experiences of poverty and development.
Bishop John Arnold
The talk, entitled “Poverty or Simplicity? Survival or development?” is taking place at 7.30pm on Thursday May 18 at Our Lady and St Thomas Church in Sheffield, and will be hosted by Bishop John Arnold, who visited the Central American countries of Nicaragua and El Salvador in November 2016.
El Salvador was badly affected by a civil war which lasted over a decade from 1980 until 1992.
Bishop John, who is chair of the Catholic aid agency CAFOD, will share his thoughts from his ten-day trip to Central America where he saw for himself some of the important work the charity does with communities in Nicaragua and El Salvador.
