Here at St Mary’s Catholic Church at Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands we have just taken part in the CAFOD PowertoBe Campaign.
Father Michael is pictured with our CAFOD representative Lily and members of the Justice and Peace group – who encouraged parishioners to sign petition cards. Our efforts were rewarded with 164 signed cards being sent to CAFOD.
Update: Nov 20th 2017
Since this was first written (in July 2017) we have heard that nationally over 26000 cards or website ‘action requests’ have been completed. THERE are still a few days to send your call to action in. CAFOD reports that there are signs that the Government and the World Bank have listened to our call. We are watching patiently and expectantly.
AND our parish had the most cards completed! Well done everyone!
