Shrewsbury CAFOD Blog to Close

For the past 9 years we have shared news, updates and stories on this blog. Many supporters, volunteers, schools, parishes and other groups have been featured and have inspired others to support of their own.

But the world of the internet and social media is a fast-changing environment and many good things must come to an end. We have concluded that it’s better to feature our thanks, celebrations, requests and stories in other places and to close down this blog. We still have plenty to share and will do so, most notably on our local page of the main website ( Facebook page (, our Twitter stream (, CAFOD’s main events page and the CAFOD’s national blog. If you haven’t followed or liked us on those places, please do. You may also want to sign up for our e-news, sent out centrally once a month with lots of interesting info and updates. You can do so on this page.

Thank you to all who have featured in these articles and to all who have helped us bring these stories together and present them on the blog.

Please do keep in touch with us. Let us know what’s happening in your parishes and schools and how amazing people are supporting CAFOD and we’ll share those stories. The blog will go offline around Christmas so please do keep us with us elsewhere. And thanks once again for your support.
