Harvest Fast Day is on Friday, October 7th and this year CAFOD is focusing on the poorest nation in South America,  Bolivia, in communities where over 60% of people are in real poverty.  At the Harvest Fast Day briefings we can show you how the Catholic community is making a lasting difference in the world around us.  We warmly invite you and your parish community to join us and hear how you can get involved this Harvest time!

Come and find out more so you can get involved!  All are welcome to our Harvest Briefings this month throughout the diocese:
