FROM OUR LOCAL CAFOD OFFICE

1) Lent Fast Day

This Family Fast Day will be different. We had to be creative for Harvest, and with your help it was a great success, so please join us in being creative again.

As well as our usual appeal, we’re asking people to walk 10,000 steps a day for the whole of Lent in solidarity with Abdella (in the picture at the top), who spends 10 hours each day collecting water for his family.

Do watch this short film clip to see for yourself.

2) Reclaim Our Common Home

The pandemic has exposed many of the inadequacies of how our world currently works. It has proved that we need greater cooperation between nations, solidarity between people and a greater focus on the poorest in society.

The decisions that world leaders take over the coming year will be critical. We are at a crossroads, and we have a chance to build a more dignified and sustainable world.
