“An act of solidarity with our brothers and sisters”: parishioners in Wolverhampton are Hungry for Change

Campaigns Volunteer Jim Quinn writes:

On the weekend of 27/28th May the Wolverhampton parish of Ss Peter and Paul heard Diocesan Campaigns Volunteer Jim Quinn speak at all the masses about the Hungry for Change campaign.

Jim told parishioners about Emily, who appears on the campaign posters and action card, and how her and her family are affected by unjust food distribution systems. To coincide with Jim’s talks, Simon Swanwick and the parish CAFOD Team organized a card signing in which campaign action cards to David Cameron were signed by parishioners. The gospel for the day was the one from John where Jesus tells us to love one another. Jim described signing the action card as an act of love, an act of solidarity with our brothers and sisters.

The children’s liturgy group at the Sunday morning mass also got involved, writing prayers and messages on the loaves and fishes cards.

Jim said: “I came away from the masses pleased to see that so many were Hungry for Change and I hope that I will meet some of them again in London on June 8th.”
