St Bernadette’s Primary School, Pentwyn
Autumn, the wonderful season of mellow fruitfulness, has seen our dedicated team of
schools volunteers visiting schools across the Archdiocese.
We cannot thank them enough for their enthusiasm and commitment to supporting our vision for change and our agenda for action.
At Harvest time, we celebrate and give thanks for the food we have.

Parishioners from Holy Name, Fishguard at the Harvest briefing
Blessed Oscar Romero regularly preached how:
“God wants a society where we share the good things that God has given for all of us.”
And at Harvest, we share God’s abundance with our neighbours.
“We plant the seeds that one day will grow.”

To mark the Centenary year of Oscar Romero, both Therese and I attended the Ecumenical Evensong in Westminster Abbey to pay tribute to this truly inspirational, soon to be, saint.
It is hard to separate our work in CAFOD from the witness of Blessed Oscar Romero with the poor in his own country in El Salvador. Even before he was assassinated in 1980 for speaking out on behalf of the poorest in, Monsenor Romero, as he is known by the Salvadoran people, was already a saint in their eyes.
This Harvest Fast Day we draw inspiration from the Oscar Romero prayer which will be in all the Fast Day packs.
If your parish is holding a Harvest Fast Day collection, the pack will be with all parish priest and parish volunteers in the first week of September.
