Frank meets partners in Lima, Peru

CAFOD Diocesan Manager, Frank Sudlow, has just returned from meeting CAFOD Partners in Peru.  He writes:

Throughout my journey I have tried to relate some of my experiences in photos and words on this site.

I invite you to join me with your comments.

During four weeks in Lima and Cusco, I was amazed by some of the people I met. 

I  have seen development projects with the poorest and most marginalised communities being led by highly educated and highly motivated women who are able to step back and take the long view.  Research here in Peru and elsewhere shows how women are able to reach deeper into the most marginalised communities and achieve remarkable effects, and the church is supporting and empowering them in these roles.

The Catholic Church is truely empowering young people, women and minorities to take their full place in society.

Young people lead the liturgies and sacramental preparation programmes as equals alongside the adults.  The Confirmation Programme is led by a dedicated team of young leaders. So too is the First Communion preparation programme.

I hope you find these Blogs interesting, do feel free to comment or ask questions, you can be sure I will read and respond to every question.

If you live in Northampton Diocese and would like me to visit your school or parish to twell you more about my visit, just let me know.
