We are delighted to welcome the new CAFOD group for St Thomas More (Kidlington) and St Hugh of Lincoln (Woodstock) who are enthusiastic to start helping thousands of people who are living in poverty to transform their lives.

At their first meeting with CAFOD co-ordinator, Deborah Purfield, they discussed different ways they could get involved promoting CAFOD’s work.  Apart from fundraising, they discussed how the parish could become more involved in campaigning with actions. This would not only help tackle the root causes of poverty and injustice but strengthen the parish community as well.

Some of these included proclaiming Laudato Si within the parish, getting involved in the Power to the people (part of the One Climate, One World campaign) with the signing of the petition to help those living in energy poverty and promoting the Lampedusa cross.  They were also interested in encouraging people to switch to ethical banking and green electricity.

“It was really good to have met you all last week.  We are delighted that there is now a CAFOD group for St Thomas More and St Hugh. You are all an inspiration and thank you so much for all you do to support CAFOD’s work.”
