Many thanks to St Swithun’s Primary in Portsmouth for welcoming back our fantastic school volunteers Patrick & Isobel Flynn. They came to talk to the children about CAFOD’s new Power To Be campaign. One in six people are still living without electricity, the hopes of millions of the world’s children are too often a distant dream. Local, renewable energy is usually the cheapest, fastest and most efficient solution to bring power to the poorest communities. It can help families to lift themselves out of poverty, without harming the world we share.
St Swithun’s Primary School Year of Mercy Pilgrimage
St Swithun’s Primary School in Southsea invited Patrick and Isobel, our CAFOD school volunteers to lead Year 5 and 6 on a Year of Mercy Pilgrimage to St Swithun’s church. Pope Francis has asked us all to undertake a pilgrimage in this Year of Mercy to show that we are walking alongside all the refuges who are forced to leave their homes.
