Lancaster Schools join CAFOD’s Great Generation

Pupils from seven secondary schools across the Diocese of Lancaster came together to learn how young people can fight poverty with CAFOD.  The CAFOD ‘Great Generation’ Day at Christ the King Catholic High School, Preston, saw 141 students learn about the work of the Catholic aid agency. Pupils also received training in campaigning techniques and information on CAFOD’s World Cup action in Brazil. CAFOD’s Rosa Trelfa, Diocesan Manager for Lancaster, said: “It gives us great hope and energy to see young people so enthusiastic about standing in solidarity with children and young people around the world. These pupils are part of the Great Generation Nelson Mandela spoke of. We thank them and their schools for their generosity and hope that they will continue supporting CAFOD’s work.”
