Congratulations to our students and members of staff who have been very active in organising events to support the work of the Catholic International Charity (CAFOD)
It is an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.
They reach out to people living in poverty with practical help, whatever their religion or culture. Through their global Church network, one of the largest in the world, they have the potential to reach everyone. They campaign for global justice, so that every woman, man and child can live a full and dignified life.

Come Lord Jesus, come
and let your light shine through us
so that through our actions
we may be salt for the earth,
a light in people's sight
and that we might reach out to you
in one another,
especially those in need.
