Retiring Collection – Harvest Fast Day (CAFOD)

Next weekends retiring collection is for Harvest Fast Day (CAFOD).

CAFOD Family Fast day Friday 4th October

No one should be beyond reach of the love and support they need to thrive. On Family Fast Day, CAFOD invites us to eat a simple meal for lunch or dinner and give the money we save to help children like Fabiano. Fabiano’s village in rural Uganda has been devastated by drought. Every day children would trek miles for water risking their education and safety.

Donations from parishioners across England and Wales helped install a solar powered water pump in the village. Now Fabiano and his friends can collect water quickly and safely.

Please collect a Fast Day envelope from church this week and give generously to help children like Fabiano or you can donate online at
