Deeper With CAFOD events

We are holding two events over the next couple of months for people who would like to know a little more about what we do and how we are trying to end global poverty.

The first will take place in Holy Family Church Hall, Lancing on the 14th of June from 11:30am – 1pm followed by a simple lunch (optional and donation only).


Looking at the world with facts and numbers

The second will take place in the hall of the Church of the English Martyrs, Horley from 2:30-4:30pm on the 1st of July.

During this time we will share about CAFOD’s vision of a world transformed, our mission to promote human development and social justice in witness to Christian and Gospel values and we will share about our work throughout the world. We will also share an update of latest news and suggest ways people and parishes might support us in our work.


Interesting discussions with inspiring people

The events are designed to be inspiring and entertaining and to give a chance for people to ask questions and hear how we put their donations to good use. All are welcome. Why not bring a friend or two or some fellow parishioners who might be interested in getting involved?

It would be helpful to know, for catering purposes, if you are intending to join us. Please do let us know by phone on 01483 898 866 or email
