LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
A parishioner at St Wilfrid’s, Widnes has raised over £2,000 with a sponsored walk for Cafod’s Coronavirus Appeal.
Christopher Roberts walked a 10-mile circuit during the summer which took in stops at four other local churches – St Bede’s, St Michael’s, St Basil’s and St John Fisher. In the process, he raised almost £2,400 for the appeal.
Christopher, a key volunteer at the St Wilfrid’s Livesimply supper nights, usually does an annual sponsored walk for the parish Lourdes fund. With no Lourdes pilgrimage this year he looked to support Cafod and was joined on the walk by fellow parishioners Kesh and Clare. ‘We kept each other going,’ he said. ‘I can’t believe how many people have donated to support the appeal, it’s fantastic. Thanks to everybody for your help and support.’
Many St Wilfrid’s parishioners have joined #CanceltheDebt Campaign, meanwhile, to ensure everyone has a safe, sustainable recovery from Covid-19. For more details, visit: https://cafod.org.uk/Campaign/Latest-campaigns/Time-to-cancel-the-debt
