CAFOD

CAFOD appeal for India

As coronavirus brings devastation across India, CAFOD is working with experienced local Church agency, Caritas India, to provide vital support to poor and marginalised communities. Donations to CAFOD’s Coronavirus Appeal will help Caritas India distribute PPE kits to frontline health workers, promote COVID & vaccine awareness campaigns, and set up safely run isolation & quarantine centres.  Please keep praying for the people of India and all those affected by the pandemic.  You can donate online here: cafod.org.uk/give

 

RECLAIM OUR COMMON HOME

This year the eyes of the world will be on Britain as we host world leaders for the UN COP26 climate talks. Pope Francis has already said clearly that “Climate change is a global problem with serious implications. It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day”.

A campaign by CAFOD and others is to ‘reclaim our Common Home’, by petitioning the Prime Minister and by making sure our MP is fully aware of our concerns. The petition can be signed using cards (now available in church) for this purpose, as well as through the CAFOD website.

We will also be hoping to meet Gagan Mohindra in a ‘community meeting’.
