Many thanks to those who attended the Understanding CAFOD afternoon at English Martyrs’ Church Horley last Saturday 1st July.
The meeting started off with an introduction of CAFOD’s visions and missions and how at the heart of the charity is Catholic social teaching. This was then followed by a statistics game where those attending had to match the statistics to statements, for example, how many children go to school without electricity which linked to the Power to Be campaign.
After that we looked at CAFOD’s international work and why we work with partners and countries where we work. We then discussed stewardship and how the money donated is spent. Finally we looked at the different volunteering roles and why volunteers are at the heart of CAFOD.
Many thanks to English Martyrs for hosting the event and we hope that it was an enjoyable and informative afternoon.
