CAFOD’s Family Fast Day

cafodCAFOD is the Catholic charity that helps the poorest, most hard-to-reach people around the world, who are facing drought, conflict, disease, injustice.

CAFOD’s Family Fast Day this Lent is an opportunity to support our brothers and sisters around the world. Drought, floods and storms are having a devastating impact on our global family.

So there’s a challenge for you! On Friday 15 March, can you eat a simple meal in solidarity and give what you save to help people in need? Through CAFOD’s global Church network – one of the largest aid networks in the world – your support can reach to the ends of the earth. Please bring your Fast Day envelope (you can find it in the church) this week and give whatever you can.


Lenten exercises!


Lent is the traditional season of renewal and repentance in Christ. It has begun on Ash Wednesday and will continue until the Holy Triduum.
