It’s Harvest Fast Day

Today is Harvest Fast Day and people across the country are taking action in solidarity with the 1 in 8 people who will go to bed hungry tonight.

Thank you to everyone who is supporting CAFOD today by fasting in order to share with their brothers and sisters in need.

Harvest Fast Day Prayer

Lord,
You who reign over all creation and nature
we ask you to help us this year
with a good rainy season.
We ask you, Lord, to bless our seeds
make them fertile with the sky’s dew
and protect them from any harm
so that they may grow to fruition
for the benefit of our families.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
Amen.
