Join us at our Harvest Fast Day Briefing to find out how CAFOD has been working with Edelmira from El Salvador
This year’s Harvest Fast Day is quickly approaching, with less than six weeks to go! CAFOD Liverpool will be holding two sessions on Wednesday 20 September around the Archdiocese so you can find out more about our exciting work in El Salvador.
We will be telling you the stories of those we support in El Salvador and you will have the chance to talk with staff who have visited the country. We will provide you with the resources you need to be able to know about our goal of focusing on improving agriculture and healthcare, reducing risks of disasters and the progress and difficulties involved in creating peace.
The sessions are as follows:
- Chorley: from 1.30pm – 4pm at St Joseph’s Parish Club, Harper’s Lane, Chorley PR6 0HR and
- Liverpool: from 7 – 9pm at St Philomena’s Church (Russell Room), Sparrow Hall Rd, Liverpool L9 6BU.
Please let us know if you’re planning to attend or would like more information by emailing email@example.com or calling the CAFOD Liverpool Volunteer Centre on 0151 228 4028. If you can’t make it to the briefings, please note that you can join a briefing online at Romero House or watch the recording afterwards by registering here.
This year’s Harvest Fast day will be also marking 100 years since the Blessed Oscar Romero’s birth and by getting involved, you can help us to make a difference to, in the words of Romero, “Plant the seeds that one day will grow.”

Whether you’d like to speak at Mass, hold a Fast Day event or hold a simple soup lunch for CAFOD, we are happy to support you.
There are many online resources available to you too, including briefing notes, which you can find here.
We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully seeing you on 20 September!
