Please come along to one of our Harvest fast day briefings to find out about CAFOD’s work in El Salvador which is quite fitting considering that it has been 100 years since  Blessed Oscar Romero’s birth.

We have three briefings which are:-

7 September – Harvest Fast Day Briefing 7.30pm to 9pm at English Martyrs’ Church Hall, 64 Liebenrood Road, Reading RG30 2EB.

9 September – Harvest Fast Day Briefing 10am to 12pm at St Joseph’s Centre, Immaculate Conception & St Joseph’s, 67 Purewell, Christchurch BH23 1EH.

23 September – Harvest Fast Day Briefing 2.15pm to 4.15pm St Stephen’s Church Hall, Oliver’s Battery Road, North Winchester S022 4JB.

We will hear about Edelmira and her husband Martir who live in Chachagua and the difficulties they face trying to farm their land, and the help they have received from Solidarity CVX one of CAFOD’s partners.
