Parish volunteers

Here are the current priorities for Parish Volunteers. We encourage you to use the resources provided to hold these activities within your parish this month.

Thank you for making Family Fast Day a success

Marian and Svondo in Zimbabwe

Donations to CAFOD's Family Fast Day Appeal can help more families like Marian's to grow food.

Thank you for all your parish has done for our Lent Family Fast Day appeal. Donations from your parish will be doubled by the UK Government. If we raise £5 million we can do some amazing things to combat malnutrition in Zimbabwe & Zambia. 

Funds raised during this period need to be sent to CAFOD by 1 July 2018. Please encourage your parish to send Family Fast Day monies in as soon as possible.

Your gift will be doubled by the UK government so that £1 equals £2

National Eucharistic Congress: 7 - 9 September

The bishops of England and Wales will hold a National Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool from 7-9 September, called Adoremus. If you will be attending as one of your parish’s representatives, do let your Community Participation Coordinator know.

Share the Journey: We need your miles!

During the Year of Mercy, the Lampedusa cross has been an image of reflection, hope and mercy.

We’re seeing walks starting to happen all over the country: from the north, with Chester University’s CathSoc clocking up 81 miles, to the south, with St Mary’s Moorfields parish in London clocking up 29 miles in 15 minutes. 

Get inspired here to organise your walk – every mile walked counts towards our target of 24,900 miles.

Could you plan a walk in your parish between April and June, leading up to a global week of action from 16-24 June?

Resources & Learning space is now live.

We have created an online portal for you to easily find resources, take part in online learning modules and be informed about upcoming events.

You can find everything you need here.
