Happy New Year! Why not consider volunteering for CAFOD as your New Year’s resolution for 2019

Parish Volunteers

Parish Volunteers at Harvest meeting.

We often make resolutions for the new-year, promises that will improve our lives and those of others. Why not make volunteering for CAFOD your resolution in 2019!

Many of the biggest changes in the world have come from groups of people saying ‘I will’ together. Help us share God’s love by ending poverty. Help us to make sure that no one is beyond reach!

We need people in our local Churches raising awareness of poverty and our work to alleviate it. We need people to visit schools, or contact their MPs on issues of importance. We need people to pray for our work. Could you make this your number one resolution?

We would love to have CAFOD parish volunteers at Holy Family Church Southampton, St Thomas More Iford, Sacred Heart Church Bordon, St Gregory’s’ Alresford, St Thomas More Stockbridge, Corpus Christi & St Joseph and Our Lady of Lourdes & St Swithun in Portsmouth.

We need school volunteers to visit primary schools in Bournemouth, Guernsey, and Portsmouth  areas to deliver assemblies and workshops.

It would be great to have more campaign volunteers to help us promote our new climate campaign Our Common Home and to encourage people to livesimply.  Or you could become an MP Correspondent and write to your MP about campaign issues 3 times a year.

However you choose to volunteer for CAFOD many thanks for your support and for making a difference to those living in poverty in our world.
