Did you know? (21)

Did you know…..CAFOD will be visiting your area in the near future?  Do come along to a CAFOD meeting and you’ll see firsthand how your generosity is transforming lives, making a real difference. This September/October we’ll be visiting West Cumbria, Fylde, Preston and Lancaster deaneries.  In the New Year we’ll be in the Blackpool, Kendal, Furness, Carlisle and Penrith areas.

As Pope Francis says; “It’s not enough to give them food. Dignity is given to you when you can bring food home from your own labour”.  

CAFOD – What we do:

 Africa-Liberia-Pastry-class_layout-largeCaribbean-Haiti-Emergencies-aid-Caritas_layout-large 

  • We help people male a living
  • We’re there in disasters and emergencies

 UK-Unknown-Campaigning-Poverty-CAFOD_layout-largeUK-education-secondary-young-people-school_layout-large

  •  We campaign for justice and an end to poverty
  •  We educate and inspire in the UK

As well as asking our supporters to donate and campaign, we place equal importance on prayer. Prayer informs and underpins our work. We provide prayers and reflections for our supporters and use prayer for our own guidance and inspiration.

 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
