CAFOD Resources

Take a look at this year’s CAFOD Advent Resources here! They include links to CAFOD’s fantastic ‘World Gifts‘ which give us an opportunity to avoid the ‘feverish consumerism’ that Pope Francis warns us about in his latest encyclical (Fratelli Tutti) and instead, offer us a chance to make a real difference in our gift giving this year.

You can book a virtual visit from a CAFOD Volunteer by contacting the Nottingham CAFOD Office: nottingham@cafod.org.uk
