The parishioners at St Anne Line , South Woodford were introduced to their new Connect2 Community last weekend. Tania Dalton from CAFOD’s Latin America team spoke at all Mass’s about the community of Puentecitos in El Salvador, the work that CAFOD is currently doing there and the people who make it possible.

Tania said’ The work focuses on building strong communities, able to resist the challenges presented by the climate, and risks of flooding, or other disasters, able to maximise the potential of the land to produce nutritious crops, able to think creatively about other forms of generating an income such as making products to sell, and able to share their experiences and learning with other communities’

Joanna Jarvis, Diocesan manager who accompanied Tania said ‘ Father Francis and all the parishioners were very welcoming and it was great to meet pupils from St Antony’s and Our Lady of Lourdes schools who recalled their recent ‘CAFOD Dig Deep’ Lent assemblies’

St Anne Line parish has raised an amazing £133,299 for CAFOD since 1990 including £10,407 for Connect2 Rwanda their pervious Connect2 country.
