Emmaus Picnic SW CAFOD Action Team, Chorlton Water Park

“The Emmaus Picnic.” took place today, and despite the torrential rain preceding it we didn’t get wet!!! We had a great time

We began with Stephen reminding us of today’s psalm

‘As with the riches of a banquet shall my soul be satisfied’ Psalm 63

We banqueted on Sabita’s potato dish and fruit cake kindly made by one of Fr. John’s parishioners.
We were further fed by the Gospel and the reflections about Sabita’s story complemented by our own ideas and stories.

Thanks also to those who clocked up kilometres on the static bike in solidarity with Fred Uttley on his epic ride (Le Tour de Fred) round the dioceses of England and Wales, and also to their sponsors. Like Fred we’re “Hungry for Change” as there’s enough food in the world for everyone.

Thanks to all who walked to raise awareness and money for Bangladesh and all who sponsored them.
