Family Fast Day 2020

This Harvest, we are launching a series of online events around Family Fast Day from 8-11 October so that we can come together and bring hope and help to those who are most in need.

A Harvest like no other

This is a Harvest like no other as many families face chronic food shortages, malnutrition and poverty as the result of coronavirus.

Join our online events

This Harvest, CAFOD has something for everyone. Join us with your school, parish, friends and family.

As well as the events below that you can already register for, we will also be holding another national assembly for schools on 8 October and a live Mass on 9 October. Details on how to register for those events will be available soon.

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

Message: This afternoon, a beautiful bunch of yellow rose buds with the laminated card below,  was laid on our behalf in Eccles in front of the cross surrounded by hundreds of individual flower tributes  and yellow ribbons for Alan Henning.
