A new taste of Connect 2- El Salvador

Parishioners from St Dunstan’s (Bourne End) and St Teresa’s (Beaconsfield) were given an update on their Connect 2 project in El Salvador  from members of the CAFOD group over the weekend of 12 and 13 December.

“Father Henry gave a powerful introduction to each talk by telling us about his direct experience of CAFOD’s work in his home country, Nigeria, particularly in reducing water borne diseases” said Margaret Wellington, one of the CAFOD group members.  “We then heard about what is happening in Puentecitos and the involvement of the Jesuit organisation Solidaridad CVX to support 300 families across 18 communities. The message was very powerful!”

Tea and coffee after Masses were spiced up with semita pastries made by following an El Salvadorian recipe downloaded from the internet.

One parishioner commented that this experience made CAFOD’s Connect 2 El Salvador programme more meaningful… and tasty!
