Please come to our CAFOD retreat on Saturday 2nd December at St Cuthman’s Retreat Centre, Cowfold road, Shipley, Horsham, West Sussex RH13 8QL from 10am to 4pm . Listening to the poor, reflecting on the scriptures and engaging with political realities transformed Oscar Romero into one of the Church’s most respected and inspirational figures. His legacy of radical love lives on 100 years after his birth.
At this CAFOD retreat you are invited to explore how Romero’s life and faith can inspire and challenge us and transform our world. Take time to reflect on your own journey of transformation, and be inspired and enriched by stories of those who continue to speak out for justice today.
Many thanks to Worth Abbey and Kir Bennett Horner our CAFOD volunteer there who organised a Refugee Pilgrimage on Saturday 24th June, the last day of Refugee week. There was meditative walk around the grounds at Worth followed by tea. After the 6pm mass there was an informal supper with speakers telling of their experience of being a refugee.
Please come and join us at the Understanding CAFOD’s work event at English Martyrs’ church hall 4 Vicarage Lane Horley RH6 8AR on Saturday 1st July from 2:30 to 4:30pm
Looking at the world with facts and numbers
During this time we will share about CAFOD’s vision of a world transformed, our mission to promote human development and social justice in witness to Christian and Gospel values and we will share about our work throughout the world. We will also share an update of latest news and suggest ways people and parishes might support us in our work.
