The new mothers group in Kariyangwe, Zimbabwe
It’s Volunteer’s Week and we at CAFOD Middlesbrough would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to each and every one of our amazing volunteers.
They are some of the most generous people you could ever wish to meet. They are dedicated and tireless, innovative and energetic, kind and compassionate, humble and loving.
They are the life-blood of our organisation, helping us to promote and support our work in our parish and school communities which in turns helps us to complete life-changing programmes of work to improve the lives of some of the poorest people on earth. They come from a wide range of ages and backgrounds but they all have a passionate concern for people in any kind of need.
So, whether you volunteer with CAFOD in our volunteer centre, or speak at Mass or promote our Lent and Harvest fast days in your parish or by visiting our diocesan schools, or by campaigning we’d like to say a big THANK YOU – you are the salt of the earth and light of the world and living examples of faith in action.
If you will like to volunteer for CAFOD, you are more than welcome to join us, please contact us via Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or Tel: 01642 822301
“In this way, led by God’s grace, we shape by many small gestures the holiness God has willed for us, not as men and women sufficient unto ourselves but rather “as good stewards of the manifold grace of God”. (Pope Francis, Gaudete et exsultate)
