Michael Walsh New Campaigns Volunteer Coordinator

“My name is Michael Walsh and I have been a supporter of CAFOD throughout my adult years.  My involvement deepened from 2008 when I became a volunteer at the Diocesan office over the Church of Christ the King in Oakwood and this year I became a Volunteer Campaign Coordinator in the Westminster Diocese. I am a parishioner at Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St George, Enfield and have given fast day talks there on several occasions. This fundraising is crucial for CAFOD to reach poor communities round the world to help people like Nicanora in the Altiplano region of Bolivia and Florence in Northern Zambia and their families become self-reliant and the Catholic community in the Diocese always responds generously. ” Continue reading
