You are warmly invited to join us at Amigo Hall (next to CAFOD HQ – near Southwark Catholic Cathedral in London) on Saturday 2 November for a special “Hungry for Change Day” led by Maria Elena Arana and the Campaigns Team.
The keynote speaker will be Fr Ignacio “Natxo” Blasco FJ, a CAFOD partner working in Guatemala on sustainable agriculture and nutrition with a community dealing with the challenging impacts of a changing climate. The parish has a significant number of indigenous Mayan people living in its boundaries.
The day will also provide updates on Hungry for Change and Enough Food for Everyone IF, a brief introduction to our next campaigns on climate change and the private sector launching in 2014, a short input on lifestyle-related activities (Fairtrade parishes and the livesimply award), and a chance to meet other campaigners.
We will end the day with a special Mass celebrated by Fr Ignacio.
There is an optional session at the beginning of the day (10am) for those who have been involved in the livesimply award in their parishes and would like to share their experiences, or those who would like to know more about the award and how to get their parishes on board. Everybody is very welcome to join!
For those not attending the livesimply session, the day will start at 10.45am (and will end at 4pm for everyone!).
You can download here the invitation letter from Maria Elena, with a full timetable of the day and more information on Fr Ignacio. A poster is also available for display in your parish noticeboards (please help us spread the word!).
Booking essential – please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01252 329385 – we hope to see many of you there, whether you are seasoned campaigners or would like to get more involved in the campaigning side of things in the future!
