Share soup with your family, friends and parishioners this Lent Family Fast Day 15 March

Family Fast Day is on Friday, 15 March 2019.

Pledge to have soup this Family Fast Day and get your family, friends and parish involved. Show your witness to the love and compassion that CAFOD stands for. Let’s pledge together in the Plymouth Diocese to make a difference for the poorest, most hard-to-reach people around the world.

Let’s all eat simply so others can simply eat!

Many parishes in the Plymouth Diocese have organised soup lunches to mark Lent Family Fast Day on 15 March or on other days in Lent.  If you can, come along to one near you and support CAFOD.
