Hope in the time of Coronavirus - CAFOD's First National Assembly!

"We have all found our lives changed by Coronavirus and whilst this has been challenging in many ways we have found ways to create hope, through being thankful, through sharing rainbows in our windows and through doing small acts of kindness for those around us. Have you ever considered how different our response to Coronavirus would be if we didn’t even have access to soap and clean water? This assembly looks at how we have come together to create hope in challenging times, and how we have to look out further to our sisters and brothers overseas who are still struggling with this pandemic – we invite everyone to be part of creating a Summer of Hope that reaches out to all in need wherever they are in the world."

CAFOD is an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

We reach out to people living in poverty with practical help, whatever their religion or culture. Through our global Church network, one of the largest in the world, we have the potential to reach everyone. And we campaign for global justice, so that every woman, man and child can live a full and dignified life.

"We are living through the biggest public health crisis in a century. Right across the UK, coronavirus is having a devastating impact on all of our daily lives, and many people have lost precious loved ones. But in many developing countries where poverty is widespread and healthcare systems are much more fragile, the effects are likely to be disastrous.

We must never forget that we are one global family, united in this struggle. Now is not the time to build barriers, but for the world to unite in love and compassion.


Out of love for our sisters and brothers overseas, sign our petition asking the Prime Minister to ensure that the most vulnerable people are the priority in the UK’s international efforts as well as at home."

In solidarity with the people of Eccles and Christian churches across Greater Manchester, let us remember Alan Henning R.I.P., his family and close friends in our prayers this week
