Celebrating Our Volunteers; Kevin McIntyre

Celebrating CAFOD Volunteers

Kevin represents CAFOD North Wales in our campaigning

 

We are delighted to celebrate the work of our wonderful Parish Volunteer, Kevin McIntyre who attends St Winefride’s in Holywell.

Having taught in East Africa for 5 years from 1968 to 1973, he and his wife, Delyth became very aware of the daily struggle many people had in their lives because of poverty and injustice. When they returned to North Wales to teach and raise a family, they felt a need to do something to support people in the less developed countries of the world. CAFOD provided us with the ideal way to do this.

Kevin has supported CAFOD in many ways since then through the school he taught at St Richard Gwyn High School and became a Parish Volunteer in 1980 where he has organised Advent and Lenten lunches involving other local churches. This event ran for over 30 years and Kevin is still a dedicated Parish Volunteer, ensuring Fast Days and campaigns are well promoted and supported in his parish. Kevin is a wonderful example of a volunteer who is passionate about his work and we’re very lucky to have his support.
