CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) is the official development and relief agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. It has been fighting poverty and injustice in developing countries for 50 years. The parish has had an active CAFOD support group since 1995 and always welcomes new members.

Promoting human development and social justice in witness to Christian faith and gospel values, the group’s work involves:

Raising funds at Lent and Harvest Fast times and also to provide immediate relief in emergency situations, so we can work alongside people in need to reduce poverty and bring about sustainable change through development and humanitarian programmes

The group organises events at which funds are raised and information is presented on CAFOD activities.  Meetings are held every few months in the Presbytery. 

Details of all aspects of our work  are displayed on the CAFOD notice board and includes the monies raised for our CAFOD campaigns such as the Lent campaign.
