CAFOD (Catholic Agency For Overseas Development) is the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales and part of Caritas International.

It is a non-governmental agency which works with international partners and local organisations in the communities served, to help those living in extreme poverty, regardless of religion or culture. See website: for more information.

Shrewsbury CAFOD Group acts in the parish to support and promote this work, by informing, campaigning and fundraising. The group meets on the first Monday of each month to plan actions and events, and welcomes new members.
