“You are not making a gift of what is yours to the poor man but you are giving him back what is his…” St Ambrose
As a parish we support CAFOD’s Family Fast Days held in March and October each year.
On Family Fast Day, we are invited to eat a simple meal for lunch or dinner and give the money saved to Cafod. In 2021 we raised £829.20 to help people like Abdella, who live in a remote and mountainous part of Ethiopia, to have access to clean safe water nearer their home.
We also give out small change collection boxes.
We promote World Gifts CAFOD's virtual charity gifts that transform lives. Perfect for Christmas, baptisms, birthdays and anniversaries. Visit www.cafod.org.uk/worldgifts for more information.
Donations received from tea and coffee after Sunday mass and other miscellaneous donations help to fund CAFOD’s Hands On Project to build peace in Magdalena Medio in the north of Colombia.
From time to time CAFOD launches an emergency appeal in response to a disaster. We are currently helping millions of people whose lives are affected by coronavirus.
