Welcoming the Stranger
"Our world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude not seen since the Second World War... We must not be taken aback by their numbers, but rather view them as persons, seeing their faces and listening to their stories,trying to respond as best we can to their situation".
Pope Francis, September 2015
CAFOD have produced a booklet, outlining Church teaching as applied to the migrant crisis. Read it here
How you can help
One Climate, One World
God has given us an abundant world to tend and share. Yet all over the world we can see how we have failed to protect our planet.
We are inspired by Pope Francis who has spoken out in his Laudato Si' encyclical about climate change, growing global inequality and the destruction of nature as the greatest threats facing the human family.
In communities where CAFOD works, many are suffering from more frequent and extreme floods, storms, or droughts, pushing the most vulnerable people further into poverty. And farming families are struggling with more unpredictable seasons, meaning crops fail and livestock die because of a lack of food and water.
Out of love for our sisters and brothers worldwide, we are called to respond.Watch the video to find out more.
What we’re calling for
What we can do
One in five people don't have access to the energy they need. You can help to change this. Write to your MP to call on the UK government to bring power to the poorest people overseas.
There are things we can all do to better care for creation and love our neighbours – from emailing to politicians to saving energy at home or at church to spreading the word about the campaign in your parish.
