Students and young adults
CAFOD’s latest resources for university students and young adult communities.
This Lent Fast Day…
...you can make a real difference to people living in poverty.
Florence is 41 and lives in northern Zambia. When her husband died in a mining accident, she struggled to make a living.
CAFOD's partner in the area, the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, gave Florence tiny fish - the size of your thumb. They also taught her to build fish ponds and care for the growing fishes – providing a way for her to help herself and her family.
“I thought, ‘I’m determined to do this,’” says Florence. “When I came back from the training, I wanted to help my neighbours as they had helped me in the past. I thought if they were empowered, they would benefit too.”
Your donations make the Sisters' work possible. Florence transformed her whole life with just a small amount of help. By donating to our Lent Appeal, you can give that help to people like Florence.
“I can send my children to school now and I can feed my family. I urge you please continue supporting me.”
CAFOD is working to develop a new dialogue with university chaplaincy and young adult communities in England and Wales; to connect your community with our network of sisters and brothers around the world, and to share with you our resources.
We’re inviting chaplaincy communities across England and Wales to join us in engaging with Pope Francis’ challenge, set out in Laudato Si’; to find a new way of living together, in our common home, by responding to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.
Below you’ll find a calendar of upcoming CAFOD activities and events, all supported with accessible and timely resources.
Please contact Tom at email@example.com if you would like any more information or resources, if you’d like someone to visit your community, or if you have any input or feedback.
