CAFOD supporters and volunteers from across the Diocese of Plymouth joined Bishop Cristopher Budd and Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP at CAFOD Plymouth’s Big Birthday Bash on Saturday 19th May 2012.
The community event was part of CAFOD’s 50th Anniversary celebrations here in the Diocese of Plymouth celebrating our supporters fantastic achievements around the world through CAFOD.
It was a real honour for us to host Fr Timothy who is the former Grand Master of the Dominicans worldwide and is a highly famous author and speaker as well as a keen CAFOD supporter and trustee who is very familiar with our work around the world.
Fr Timothy’s talk was a real inspiration to all of those present helping us relect on why CAFOD matters and on what we have achieved together over the past 50 years.
After Fr Timothy’s talk we had great fun with a family picnic, a barn dance, music from our Congolese friends at the Living Stones Choir and heard from CAFOD’s Kenyan Programme Officer Laureta Madegwa about our work in East Africa.
