A Happy New Year For All

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?

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 reach everyone in poverty.

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?

Connect the POOR to the POWERFUL! Sign up to be a CAFOD MP Correspondent

CAFOD needs more people to volunteer to be a MP Correspondent (MPC). MPCs lobby their local MP on issues which affect people living in poverty around the world. This can be done either by writing to your MP, or by meeting your MP face-to-face, for example, at a constituency surgery. By doing this, we can ensure that the voices of the poor are heard by those in power and so result in changes in government policy.
