El Salvadoran visitors come to Preston

Here’s an great way to find out more about CAFOD’s work and the difference we are all making to the lives of people abroad…….


Erasmo and Sandra will be travelling from our Connect2 project in El Salvador in Central America and they’ll be coming to an Open Church (an informal drop-in with tea and cakes) at St Mary’s Catholic Parish in Bamber Bridge, Preston, PR5 6SP on Sunday 17th March between 3pm and 6pm (with Mass (optional) at 6.30pm).

This is a great opportunity to meet people whose work the people of Lancaster and Salford Dioceses has supported through CAFOD.

CAFOD’s Connect2 projects help people here to understand life in the country, build relationships between people here and in six of the developing countries in which CAFOD works as well as providing critical financial support to build a stronger future for our brothers and sisters in the developing world.

This is also chance to meet parishioners here who have undertaken the Connect2 project at St Mary’s and there will be interpreters available. The parish group will have tea and cakes available at 4pm and there will be a talk, slideshow and questions from 4.30-5.15pm.

If you live in the Preston area, please could you:

1. display this poster advertising the event?

2. Talk to people and try and get a couple of people from a group in the parish to come along?

3. Come on the day if you can?

4. Find out if your parish would be interested in taking part in Connect2 in the future?

We hope you can make it – Erasmo and Sandra will be pleased to meet you and share with you the difference the partnership with CAFOD has made to their lives over the years.
