CAFOD is the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.

We are the official overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

We are also a member of the Caritas International Federation – a network of Catholic relief and development agencies.

COP26 – Campaign for the climate

The destruction of our land, oceans and forests is threatening people’s homes and their ability to earn a living.

In November, governments from across the world gather to discuss how to tackle the climate emergency at COP26. It’s vital for the Catholic community to demand that our leaders act now to protect our common home.

Join us for COP26: Global Day of Action for the Climate 2021 – 6 November 2021

Our campaign One Climate, One World is calling for politicians to work together to:

  • prevent climate change pushing people deeper into poverty
  • support the transition from polluting fossil fuels to sustainable energy for all.

No one wants to live on handouts. Our priority is to equip people with skills and opportunities to live with dignity, support their families and give something back to their communities.

Fast Day collections are held twice a year in Lent and Harvest time.

We raise money by selling goods at Hurst Green Flea Market twice a year.  Also, items are sold on eBay and in the local paper.  More fundraising ideas are always welcome.

We welcome new members.  Please come to our meetings to see what we are doing for CAFOD.

If you cannot attend the meetings and wish to join our group, please contact Grace (see below).  Extra meetings can be held for the convenience of parishioners from Sabden and Dunsop Bridge
