CAFOD stands for the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development. They are an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

CAFOD helps and supports people living in poverty – whatever their religion or culture. Through local Church partners, they help people directly in their own communities and campaign for global justice, so that everyone can reach their full potential. In Stanford-Le-Hope and Tilbury we raise funds for CAFOD eg by donating money raised during our Lentern Fast.

Dear Father,

Thank you to everyone at Our Lady Star of the Sea for your gift of £495 to our Lent appeal, which we received recently. Your parish's prayers and collective Family Fast Day donation of £495 is so appreciated.

Thank you especially for your efforts in organising a collection in your church; for being a bridge between your community and our sisters and brothers around the world. Your parish's support of Family Fast Day means that we can be there for more families experiencing hunger, poverty, discrimination and the dangers of conflict, and help them to rebuild their lives.

This total reflects the gifts from your parish that have been processed to date. Parish donations are sent to us in number of ways, such as via contactless, online, as a parish cheque or by parishioners posting their the collection envelopes directly to us, and some of these take longer to process. If your parish total changes, we'll send you an email update with the good news.

Thank you and God bless,

Genevieve Cox
