Did you know? (20)

Did you know……. CAFOD has committed £25,000 to our Caritas partners in Iraq to respond to the plight of Iraqis forced from their homes, fleeing violence?  This money will be used to support the urgent needs of families who now find themselves living in schools, public buildings, churches and mosques.  Working under dangerous conditions, our partners report that it is difficult to move around because of the insecurity, but they’re doing all they can to coordinate with the Churches and their clergy.  The solidarity of Catholics across England and Wales is a source of genuine hope for our brothers and sisters in need.

We provide a weekly ‘CAFOD fact’ as a short ‘Did You Know?’ to parishes across the Lancaster Diocese, which they print in their parish newsletters. If you would be interested in receiving this weekly email, let us know at CAFOD Lancaster and we’ll send it directly to you too – email: lancaster@cafod.org.uk
