Lent Fast Day and the doubling of donations

Did you know… we’re really pleased to announce that CAFOD has once again successfully secured match funding, for up to £3.5 million pounds, from the UK government for our Lent appeal? Every pound you donate to CAFOD will be matched by the UK government. It’s a testament to both the integrity of CAFOD’s work with partners overseas and to the incredible generosity of the Catholic community in England and Wales. This Lent Fast Day, Friday 19 February, we have an exceptional opportunity to make an even bigger difference to people living in poverty. Thank you.

Lent Fast Day: Resources for parishes and communities

Looking for schools materials? Our Lent pages for primary and secondary schools have everything you need to get your pupils involved.

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
