A Harvest of Briefings, Meetings and Get-Togethers in September

Harvest is a time where we celebrate God’s generosity in the goodness and abundance of creation. We also share from our abundance with those who are in need.

Harvest Fast Day is one of our most important events of the year. We ask people to miss a meal or eat lightly, to pray for those in poverty and to donate to our work. Parishes and schools hold collections and send the donations on to us.

We organise local meetings to ensure that all our parish volunteers are up to date, know all about the stories and situations behind Fast Day and have a chance to explore the topic with other local volunteers. It gives us a great chance to meet and hear news from churches and local communities.

This year Harvest Fast Day will focus on our work in El Salvador, quite fitting considering that it’s 100 years since Blessed Oscar Romero’s birth. We worked with Blessed Romero, not least in rebuilding his radio station when it was destroyed by his enemies.
