VOLUNTARY DIOCESAN COLLECTIONS

We also support the following voluntary collections as suggested by the Diocese:

CATHOLIC ASSOCIATION FOR OVERSEAS DEVELOPMENT (CAFOD)

CAFOD works in over 60 countries worldwide tackling poverty and injustice.  Our Church community supports the Lent and Harvest Fast Days, and other appeals.

RACIAL JUSTICE

Christians believe that all people are made in the image of God, and the universal Church comprises people from every background and culture.  Yet we continue to live in a very unequal and unjust world where ethnic conflict abounds.

The Churches' Racial Justice Network works for racial justice across Britain and Ireland.  We aim to make a real difference in the Christian community and far beyond by raising awareness, encouraging effective working together and facilitating imaginative local initiatives.

CATHOLIC AGENCY TO SUPPORT EVANGELISATION (CASE)

Launched in April 2004, this team is dedicated to enthusing, engaging and equipping Catholic individuals, parishes, schools, communities and organisations, to become involved in what the late Pope John Paul II called "the urgent task of evangelisation".
