CAFOD

CAFOD logo

The Catholic Agency For Overseas Development (CAFOD) is the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales and part of Caritas International.

Across the world CAFOD brings hope and compassion to poor communities, standing side by side with them to end poverty and injustice. CAFOD works with people of all faiths and none.

Inspired by Scripture and Catholic Social Teaching, and the experiences and hopes of people living in poverty, CAFOD works for a safe, sustainable and peaceful world.

There are regular collections for CAFOD in our parish, not to mention the “CAFOD cat” in the reception area of Our Lady’s in Belper.

The parish coordinator with CAFOD is David Pipe.
