Jean and I are the CAFOD focal points for Christ The King. We try to promote CAFOD’s role within the parish, and an important part of this is providing information that may be useful or helpful to any who wish to find out about CAFOD’s work. We will use this spot on the parish web-site to say a bit more about events or campaigns, or meetings that we have attended, and try to give a picture that’s fuller than can be put in the bulletin or pinned to the noticeboard. We hope you find it interesting and, maybe, useful. We’ll update it weekly or fortnightly and would welcome any thoughts or questions you may have in response – our number is 419439. Mark Wallis

Thank you to all who took part in our ‘Share the Journey’ walk on Sunday. The sun shone on us, not unusual of late, as we set off down towards the Castle, then past the cemetery and up through the Mundy Playing Fields.  We arrived back in time to join in the shared lunch with other parishioners in a shady front garden. We’ve added our contribution to the total via the CAFOD web-site, and this will go towards the second lap! CAFOD’s campaign, shared internationally with Caritas, has already reached its target of walking 24,900 miles, the distance around the world, and is now hoping to do so twice.

Those who joined together for the walk also signed a card, and these will sent off to the Prime Minister to press her to ensure that global agreements can be reached to protect refugees. Don’t worry if you haven’t had a chance to sign one, as they don’t have to be sent off until September, so pick up a card from me at church, or sign the petition on the CAFOD web-site that will also go the Prime Minister.

To find the petition and more on the ‘Share The Journey’ campaign, follow the links on the CAFOD web-site.

Thank you again for your support.
