On Harvest Fast the children of St John Ogilvie Parish, Corby, learned about CAFOD’s work in Africa during the Children’s Liturgy and returned to tell the rest of the Congregation about how mosquito nets can save lives.
During Mass a baby covered in a mosquito net was on the alter and a cheque for £300 (equivalent to the cost of 60 nets) was presented to the Parish CAFOD representative.
This money was raised from monthly coffee mornings, refreshments after Mass and the change collected by parishioners in their CAFOD pyramid boxes, demonstrating that small change can make a big difference!
SPECIAL THANKS must go to two of the youngest parishioners who presented the Parish CAFOD group with a cheque for £60, the amount they had raised from a tombola held at the end of their drive. Using their own initiative the girls made posters, invitations etc and organised the whole event.
Well done and thanks to them both. They have showed us all how to live simply and help others.
