Bishop John Arnold to talk of his CAFOD Bangladesh Visit

Bishop John Arnold will be sharing his first-hand experiences of the work of CAFOD’s partners in Bangladesh, who are helping the huge numbers of Rohingya refugees fleeing violence in Myanmar (Burma). The talk will be held this Saturday 24th March at 2pm in St John the Baptist’s Parish Hall, Burnley, BB10 1TB. Bishop John’s previous talks about his CAFOD visits to Central America and Africa have been highly informative and allowed supporters in the Diocese of Salford to hear how their fundraising is helping those in most need around the world.
