Volunteers week got off to a fantastic start in East Anglia with the presentation of four Papal Blessings at St George’s Church in Norwich. Gloria Irons, Pat Buxton, Gill Bannon and Jenny Campling all received their awards from Fr Sean for over 25 years of CAFOD volunteering on Sunday 2nd June. The Mass was a wonderful celebration of all that they’ve done over the years as well as a CAFOD Creation Celebration, thanking God for creation and paying for Our Common Home
