CAFOD – Family Fast Day

Family Fast Day is on Friday 23rd February. Lent Family Fast Day envelopes will be handed out after Mass this weekend at each of our churches. Please keep your Family Fast Day envelope throughout Lent and each time you resist a treat or otherwise abstain, put the money you save in the envelope and return it on the Sunday after Easter. This Lent, try to live simply so that others may simply live.

Lent Resources

During Lent, the diocese will be sharing a range of resources to accompany people in prayer over the coming weeks. The resources have been created to support our journey throughout this Year of Prayer, as we prepare for the Pilgrims of Hope Jubilee in 2025. Resources can be accessed via the diocesan social media channels or by visiting the website at
