St Leonard and St Mary, Malton

On 16th/17th October, our parish welcomed David and Carol Cross from CAFOD and Winston Berrios, an agronomist from Nicaragua who had recently visited Puentecitos, the village in El Salvador to which this parish is linked through CAFOD’s Connect2 programme.

Winston was able to give us an insightful picture into life in Puentecitos and how, with CAFOD’s help, the people are improving their farming techniques and thus raising their standard of living.

Winston thanked the parish for their prayerful and monetary support and told us how pleased the community is to be linked to our parish through Connect2.
