Catholic Agency for Overseas Development

Jo Wood

CAFOD Lead Volunteer

As a parish we support the work of CAFOD which is the official Catholic aid agency for England and Wales, and part of Caritas International. CAFOD works through the local Church to reach people and places that others can’t.

CAFOD brings hope and compassion to poor communities across the world, standing side by side with them to end poverty and injustice.  They work on long-term development as well as responding to emergencies.

Read more on the CAFOD website.

The CAFOD reps at OLSD aim to promote the charity’s fundraising initiatives in our own parish and in particular the Lent and Advent Family Fast Days.  In Lent 2024 the parish raised over £600 in this way.
