Harvest Fast Day is just around the corner, on Friday 3rd October. We warmly invite you to make a place at your table for families around the world who don’t have enough to eat.
We invite our schools and parishes to make use of our helpful, engaging Fast Day resources, prayer and parish talk to promote Harvest Fast Day in your Parish. Your regular donation will help us make sure the world’s poorest families have enough food today and for the future.
