Exploring CAFOD’s new strategic framework

As our previous strategic framework comes to an end, we are taking a fresh look at our direction in our new ten-year framework ‘Our Common Home’. We have rephrased our vision, mission and values and affirmed Pope Francis’ mandate on the environment by focussing on ‘integral ecology’.

We would like to discuss your reactions to the framework and hear your views on how you see it impacting our work with the Catholic community and how you carry out your volunteering.

We’ll make sure we have time to unpack any unfamiliar language and will have a colleague who has been closely involved in drafting the framework to help guide us and answer any questions.

A member of CAFOD Leadership team will also be invite to join us, I will let you know who this is, once it has been confirmed

2nd Nov 2019:Campaign volunteers and supporters: Faith in Action day, York

The Faith in Action events were created with a simple ethos: to help explore the links between faith and politics.

SIGN UP HERE – SIGN UP HERE– SIGN UP HERE

To help define the moments when we should pray from the side-lines and when should we roll up our sleeves.

Our global church has a proud history of encouraging Catholics’ political reflection and action.

This day will focus on reflecting on church teaching and scriptures, alongside sharing inspiring stories of CAFOD campaigners both here in the UK and overseas – and of how you can get involved

From Trump to Brexit to climate, politics is everywhere. But when should we pray from the side-lines and when should we roll up our sleeves?

The Church here and around the world has a proud history of encouraging Catholics’ political reflection and action. With amazing results.

At this CAFOD day, we’ll explore the links between faith and politics.

Join us and reflect on Scripture and Church teaching. Be inspired by others and CAFOD’s campaigning and work overseas.
