Priest Brothers Team Up to Send Poor to WYD

A trio of brothers, two of them priests, have teamed up to bring poor Brazilians to Rio for this month's World Youth Day.
Two of the brothers -- (one of them a priest) -- undertook a 100-mile bicycle ride to raise funds to send the third brother, who does missionary work in Brazil.

Fr James Shekelton – accompanied by his brother John and Albert Font, a young parishioner from St Marie’s Cathedral, Sheffield – completed the cycle ride from Sheffield to Manchester city centre and back last Friday. All the money raised will help Fr James’ other brother, Fr Peter Shekelton, take 30 disadvantaged young people from Barcelos, Brazil, to Rio. Visit this article to read more.
