Fr Peter Hughes

You are invited to Christ the Prince of Peace Church Weybridge on Saturday 15th July from 10:45 to 12:30pm to hear Fr Peter Hughes give a talk called  “Listening to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. The response of the Church in Latin America to Pope Francis’ call.”  A long term supporter and volunteer of CAFOD heard Fr Peter speak in another diocese and commented that in his many years of being involved, this was the best event CAFOD has ever done!

You are also very welcome to join the parish for their Saturday morning Mass at 10am before the talk starts.

Fr Peter Hughes is an Irish Columban priest from County Mayo who has spent most of his life as a missionary based in Lima, Peru. As well as his work in some of the most desperately impoverished communities in Lima, Peter is an advisor to the Instituto Bartolome de las Casas and CELAM, the collegial council of Latin American bishops designed to promote pastoral leadership, initiatives and inspiration for the 22 bishops conferences of Latin America and the Caribbean.

The talk will be followed by a simple lunch so for catering purposes please book a place here or contact mailto:arundelandbrighton@cafod.org.uk or call 01483 898866 for more information.
