It was great to meet Fr Nazarius Mgungwe who gave me a warm welcome and was keen to promote CAFOD’s work more in the parish. Fr Nazarius was amazing as he not only was open to the parish being more involved, but he also thought there and then of a suitable person for the role of Parish Volunteer. Fr Nazarius called Margaret while I was with him and by the time the meeting was over, the parish had a potential parish volunteer! Wonderful.
Margaret was lovely in her openness and willingness to help promote Lent Fast day (10 March) and was keen to attend the supporters’ day to learn more about CAFOD’s work. This will be on:
- Wed 22 Feb – Our Lady Help of Christians, Oxford, OX4 2ND, 10am – 12:30pm
Fr was also interested in promoting Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ and we discussed how best to do it. I am really looking forward to working more closely with the parish.
