We are delighted to annouce that we have Fr Pius Win Than from Myanmar (Burma) coming to talk to us on the 17th of February about CAFOD’s work in Myanmar. Fr Pius and the Pathein diocese have already benefitted from the support of CAFOD, but will also be a direct beneficiary of the Lent Fast Day appeal, so a perfect spokesperson. We will also share a stand up buffet.
Speakers who can speak of their personal experiences of CAFOD’s support are always inspiring and people who hear them are uplifted – knowing that their donations are being well used. Many also enjoy the gatherings to meet other CAFOD staff, supporters and volunteers. It is well worth coming along.
Father Pius Win Than is the Associate Director or Caritas Pathein , a local CAFOD partner based in Myanmar. Fr Win Than has been working in Caritas since 2005, supporting his staff wherever necessary; whether that is travelling to the project areas to meet the communities or putting his staff in contact with the township authorities.
Caritas Pathein works with the poor and vulnerable communities in the Diocese of Pathein, helping them to increase their job opportunities and income, increase their access to health care , increase their understanding of their basic human rights, and help communities to mitigate disasters through supporting the development of emergency preparedness plans.
There will be Mass in Our Lady’s of Effingham Catholic Church at 6pm if you are able to make it and we will have the talk after Mass in the hall starting at 7pm.
Please do get in touch with us with questions or for direction and to let us know you are attending what will be a wonderful evening.
The full address of the Church is Our Lady of Sorrows, Lower Road, Effingham, Surrey KT24 5JP
