Day of Recollection

Bishop Alan Hopes has asked to say Mass for CAFOD, as part of the celebrations of the 40th Anniversary of the Diocese of East Anglia.

Please join us for this special event celebrating our contribution to the church’s mission in this diocese, and all those we have helped across the world.

img_2051So, our forthcoming Day of Recollection will begin with Mass in the Cathedral of St John the Baptist in Norwich, at 12 noon on Saturday 25 February.

A light lunch will follow, in the Narthex.

In the afternoon, from 2:00-4:30pm we will be looking forward and preparing for Lent. Our focus will be on the people and projects we are helping people to provide in Zambia, particularly focusing on livelihoods – how people in the community are coming together, helping themselves grow food and create an income for their families.

 Please register your interest in attending this special event.

Memorial Mass


Over the years, CAFOD has been enormously blessed by the kindness and commitment of our supporters, but sadly many of the people who have been at the heart of our work are no longer with us.

Join us on Friday, 4 November at 12 noon to celebrate Mass and pray for all those who have been such a significant part of CAFOD’s work. This Memorial Mass is being celebrated at Our Lady of the Annunciation, Kings Lynn.

Simple refreshments will be served afterwards.

Please register to say that you are interested in coming.

We will be particularly remembering:

  • Robert ‘Bob’ Addison from Sacred Heart in Ramsey
  • Nigel and Helen Gorham from St Felix parish in Felixstowe
  • Cathy Green from Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Cambridge
  • Michael Prentice from St Dominic parish in Downham Market
  • Jacqui Richardson from St Mary’s parish in Thetford


If you wish to add anyone to our particular intentions for this mass, or you would like more information please contact Stephen Matthews or call 01223 358552.
