Many thanks to Tania Dalton CAFOD’s Latin America Communications Officer for sharing her expertise and knowledge on the life of blessed Oscar Romero and CAFOD’s work in El Salvador at the Portsmouth Hispanic society’s meeting at Fratton Community centre last week.
Diane Hiley, Chairman of the society said “Thank you very much indeed for giving us such an interesting presentation, and as I said, so heartening to know of the dedicated work by good people in such bad circumstances.”
A HUGE thank you to the Portsmouth Hispanic Society for their very generous donation of £215 towards CAFOD’s work.
Would your parish like to Connect 2 a community in El Salvador? Punetecitos is a rural village in the west of El Salvador and the people are improving community life through organic farming methods and opening small businesses. Your parish can join Connect 2 by signing up on the website. Then a welcome pack will be sent with information about the community and ideas on how to fund raise. Regular updates are sent from the community so that the parish can see the difference their donations are making and there is also an opportunity for the parish to respond by to send cards and photos back so that the two communities become connected.
