We are so blessed to have four wonderful parish volunteers taking on an additional role of the area coordinator. They will have the opportunity to work with and motivate a small group of volunteers in their various pastoral areas :
Ged – SE Bucks, Rose – Luton and parts of Central Beds, Dinah – Bedford and Maggie – Milton Keynes
They attended a training session at the volunteer centre in Princes Risborough where they could share ideas and meet their fellow area coordinators. Dinah said, “It is great to have met other area coordinators and hear their experiences. The day was so helpful and useful and I feel so much more comfortable in the role now. Knowing I have the support not only of the Debbie (CAFOD coordinator) but also of fellow volunteers is great!”
The area coordinators left feeling enthused. Maggie commented, “It was a great day! I am so glad I came. I feel inspired to go out and do more – to share CAFOD’s vision with others and I can’t wait to start.”
A massive Thank You to Ged, Dinah, Maggie and Rose for offering their time, skills and talents to deepen relationships and build new ones in their pastoral area and share CAFOD’s vision with others. A big thanks to Santi for supporting the group by sharing his invaluable I.T skills! You are all such an inspiration!
