CAFOD World Gifts
World Gifts seek to provide practical help to those in need and proved to be very popular last year when the Cathedral community hoped to buy at least 10 goats and 10 trees as gifts from the parish. The final amount raised was £450 which enabled us to purchase many more items. This Christmas, we hope to support another community in the same way. If you would like to contribute please place your gifts in the envelopes provided at the back of Church and we will keep you informed of progress.

They are meeting the costs and providing volunteers for the day, any donations received during Advent will go directly toward this particular cause.
