The parish of St Mary of the Angels, Aldridge, came together for a parish meal to raise funds for CAFOD’s work in El Salvador.
The parish is linked to the community of Puentecitos in El Salvador through CAFOD’s Connect2 scheme, which enables parishes in England and Wales to hear directly from communities in countries where CAFOD works and find out how their support for CAFOD is changing lives.
The meal raised £620 to support CAFOD’s work in Puentecitos and similar communities in El Salvador.
Beryl Meehan, CAFOD Parish Contact, said: ‘This will be our first contribution to El Salvador. We look forward to hearing more about Puentecitos.’
Parishioners from St Mary of the Angels also recently organised a fundraising walk.
The group braved the weather to walk to Lichfield, to raise further funds to support CAFOD’s work.
Huge thanks to the parish for all their efforts, which will make a real difference to the lives of people in El Salvador.
