Our Lancaster Diocese CAFOD school volunteers spent a day with other school volunteers from Salford Diocese and North Wales to look at the new school materials for Lent, focusing on Hungry for Change.
Sister Pauline from Mombasa in Kenya joined the group to share her stories. She actually knows the project which is featured in the Lent Fast Day materials for schools and was able to speak about the project and life in that part of Kenya.
A quietly spoken but passionate lady driven by her faith, Sr Pauline is one of CAFOD’s trusted partners and works herself in a programme in Mombasa addressing HIV and AIDS . It was a privilege to have her company.
Sr Pauline shared that Rose, featured in the Lenten powerpoint available to our primary schools, is wearing a necklace which indicates her marital status and the sandals, worn by the people in the village, are made from old tyres.
Thanks to all who came along – it was a great day!
