On Sunday 16 October, Songs of Praise celebrates CAFOD’s 60th anniversary in their milestone moments episode.
CAFOD trustee Bishop John Arnold and Head of Supporter Engagement Jo Kitterick will be featured chatting to Reverend Kate Bottley about CAFOD’s history and our hopes for the future.
Bishop John and Jo both spoke about the impact of the climate crisis and why supporting communities around the world to deal with its consequences has become a central part of CAFOD’s work.
The filming took place in the Laudato Si centre in Salford, which was established by Bishop John in response to his work with CAFOD and Pope Francis’ letter to the world, Laudato Si. The centre has a range of environmentally friendly projects, including several hives of bees which will appear on the programme.
The episode also marks milestones from other organisations and churches, such as Manchester Cathedral and the BBC’s 100 years of public broadcasting.
