The North East Area CAFOD Action Team (CAT) cordially invite you to their CAFOD Emmaus Meal on Monday 8th April at 7.30pm. This spirituality/campaign event, being held at St John the Baptist’s Parish Hall in Burnley, is an opportunity for local people to come together as a community during our journey through Easter and in this Year of Faith, and learn a little more about the issues around global hunger.
Through breaking bread together (sharing a small sample of dishes from Kenya, Bangladesh & El Salvador) and reflecting on Scripture, Catholic Social Teaching, and the experiences of our brothers and sisters who do not have enough food, it is hoped that our eyes will be opened to the hungry body of Christ in our midst today.
Please be aware that it is not a full evening meal, but just a taste of the simple dishes our sisters and brothers eat overseas, so attendees should have their tea before coming. Please come along and bring a fellow parishioner, this event is open to everyone, not just St John’s parishioners or just catholics, it would be of interest to anyone interested in the issues around global hunger. CAFOD’s “Hungry for Change” campaign is part of a UK wide coalition of action under the “Enough Food IF” campaign, which is urging David Cameron to take the lead on tackling global hunger as he prepares to host the G8 summit in June
