Did you know (51)?

Did you know……CAFOD strongly supports Pope Francis’ call to prevent further suffering for migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea? As part of Caritas International, we are calling for open, legal and safe channels of migration to the European Union to ensure that people can migrate without risking their lives, with their reception and protection shared across Europe. Caritas Italy, our sister agency, meets migrants and refugees as they arrive in Sicily, providing them with water, warm clothes, blankets and food, and also offering around 6,000 beds in towns throughout Italy.

 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
