Parish priest Fr Ken Payne had asked for volunteers before Harvest Fast day 2016 and Brian very kindly agreed to take on the role and started looking out for more people to join him.  At Harvest Fast Day weekend, Deacon John gave the Fast Day talk and appealed for volunteers.  So it was such a delight to see five people (one person couldn’t make it but is keen to be part of the group) at the initial meeting together with Fr Ken.  Ged Nolan (coordinator for the SE Bucks pastoral area) was also present together with Debbie Purfield (CAFOD coordinator – Northampton).

Brian drew up an agenda and we discussed how to promote CAFOD in the parish not only through fundraising but though Campaigning and Prayer.

Debbie said, “It was wonderful to have met the new group.  I am always so inspired by how generous people are with their skills and time.  Volunteering is a faith journey and I am honoured to be able to travel with them in this.”
