Thank you for your patience while we take on board the changing situation with COVID-19 and the incredibly important role you play in support of our development and humanitarian work.
Thanks to your compassion and commitment, we can reach some of the poorest and marginalised communities around the world.
Volunteer offices closed (for now) – but there are still many ways to get involved
CAFOD is following the advice issued by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England & Wales (CBCEW) as well as the UK government.
Following the government’s advice, we have taken the decision to cancel all face-to-face events and meetings and have closed all regional offices until at least June.
Get in touch: All your usual local office contacts will still be available by mobile phone, email and via social media, so if you have any questions or thoughts do not hesitate to be in touch whatever your query:

With the Coronavirus pandemic causing masses to be cancelled, there are now lots of parishes and cathedrals offering virtual worship.
You can find out more information about local live-streamed services at The Diocese of Lancaster website.
We’ve also created a ‘Children’s Liturgy Live!’ session which will take place every Sunday to help families to worship in their own homes.
If you’re looking for community, we have a CAFOD community group on Facebook. Please do join and invite others to do the same.
If you’re a parent, we have a large range of online education resources tailored specifically for primary and secondary ages, alongside worship and prayer content.
If you’re looking to learn more about CAFOD’s international work, we will be releasing a weekly timetable of online talks.
If you are a CAFOD volunteer and hear of a great story in your local parish – please let us know so we can share it on our social media channels and website.
It would be great if you would be able to email over a few sentences about what happened, along with a photo.
Prayer for the Coronavirus
Even though the volunteer centres are temporarily shut, we hope to be able to continue to offer opportunities to connect with the lives of our sisters and brothers around the world.
Please keep an eye on our social media pages for the latest updates:
In the meantime, we continue to pray for all those affected by the COVID-19 virus and the healthcare workers here in the UK and overseas, who are on the frontline of this crisis – and ask that you too join us in keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.
