CAFOD - SUMMER OF HOPE
Author Frank Cottrell-Boyce will write a short piece based on what children have said they are hopeful about at this time. Frank will be capturing children’s thoughts and feelings at this challenging time and turning them into a unique piece of writing on behalf of CAFOD.
In just one word, or one sentence, tell us what has given you hope. You can use pictures or designs to illustrate your words.
Please ask permission from an adult to email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 27 July. If you’ve put your ideas down on paper and you want to send a photo of it, that’s fine too! Don’t forget to include your first name, your age and your town.
For further information follow the link below. Why take part in this fantastic opportunity to support CAFOD?
This is a resource which helps us understand as a diocese what we are praying for and as a church what we are celebrating, remembering and doing for every single day of the year. It is like a diary/calendar for the whole church across the whole world.
Please take some time at the beginning of each week to share this with your family.
Also watch the weekly video show that highlights and celebrates all the awesome things happening in our church and our diocese.
It’s a chance to really explore the rich Church year!

This years donations for the Harvest Festival were fantastic, allowing the St Vincent de Paul Society to pass on produce to a variety of people from the sick and elderly to helping refugees through the Red Cross.
