Remembrance giving

A donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life and ensure faith, hope and love live on. By remembering one special life, many more lives around the world will be changed.

One beautiful way to honour a loved one is to light a candle and give in loving memory.

Give in memory of a loved one

All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.

St Francis of Assisi

When someone we love dies, finding a positive way to celebrate their life and spirit can help us to find strength and hope.

Some people like to make a one off in memory donation, perhaps holding a collection at their funeral in lieu of flowers, or wish to set up an annual gift to mark birthdays or anniversaries.

Order some collection envelopes and out more about donating in memory of a loved one.

November Memorial Masses

CAFOD has been hugely blessed by the kindness and dedication of our supporters.  But sadly over the years we have said goodbye to a number of friends who have passed away. During November, the month of remembrance, Memorial Masses are held across England and Wales to commemorate all those who have been at the heart of our work. 

You can find out more about the Masses or get in touch to add the name of a loved one to our Books of Remembrance.
