Help us make this a Harvest Like No Other
Let’s bring our parish communities together to help the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world survive, rebuild and heal.
We have adapted our approach to Harvest Fast Day, consistent with the Church’s guidance on second collections. We will be asking you to work with your parish priests to remind your parish of the CAFOD collection and provide options to donate online or via text, use envelopes or contactless devices. We will also ask you to invite your fellow parishioners to our planned virtual events over 9-11 October to mark Harvest Fast Day.

CAFOD has joined with the UK Disasters Emergencies Committee to help millions of people whose lives are at risk, as coronavirus spreads across refugee camps and countries suffering conflict. You can donate at cafod.org.uk/coronavirus to help CAFOD scale up its coronavirus response through our global Church family.
