Volunteer Celebration Mass Saturday 16 June

On Saturday the 16th June at 2pm, we will be holding a Volunteer Celebration Mass for the South East of England.

This will take place close to our diocese at Our Lady, Help of Christians Parish in delightful Farnborough.

We will serve refreshments after and hear from Tania Doulton from our Latin America Team then hopefully go on a lovely (and not too long) walk for our Share the Journey campaign after.

During the Mass itself, Martin will be playing music but would love it if there were other musicians who wanted to join in – just let us know.

Do join us to celebrate the marvellous contribution of our volunteers to our work in the diocese and around the world.

Opportunities for Young Adults

Amplifying our work on social media

Amplifying our work on social media

We are always keen to provide opportunities for young adults to join us in our mission and support our work. Here are two exciting ways for 18-30/35s to get involved with our work (and get some excellent experience at the same time).

  • CAFOD Masterclasses

Young adults aged 18-30 are invited on a free day-long course to develop skills in one of three topics: print or digital communications, campaigning or fundraising.

Harnessing the expertise and specialisms within the organisation, our courses are led by CAFOD staff who are leaders in their field.

After a day of building skills, participants will be supported to put what they’ve learned into action in support of the world’s poorest people.

The Masterclasses are offered in London. All courses run on 27 March, so you must choose only one option. Registration is open now. Expenses can be covered on a case-by-case basis.

  •  Climate Champions

This new international volunteer opportunity will enable young adults between 18-35 to gain new experiences, meet other volunteers from across Europe and play their part in creating a better world.

Climate champions will take part in an international workshop in summer 2018 on sustainability with other Catholic young people from across Europe.

When they return, based on their own strengths and skills, we will support them in raising awareness about climate change, sustainable living and CAFOD campaigns in their parish or community.

Applications through the website close on 5 March.
