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

During November, the month of remembrance, we take time to pray for those who have died and give thanks for loved ones who have made a deep and lasting impression on our lives.

MEMORIAL MASS YOUNG CHILDREN CANDLESDuring this special time, we hold Memorial Masses across England and Wales in honour of supporters and loved ones who have died.

At each Mass, we present a Book of Remembrance which includes names of supporters who have sadly passed away during the year.

These Masses create a special time to come together and to reflect on the lasting impact our loved ones have had on the world.

A time to come together

It is a time to come together and to reflect on the lasting impact our loved ones have had on the world.

We pray they find peace and that we can continue their legacy of love in their memory.
