The church is made up of millions of people, who share in a rich tradition of giving, practice a rhythm of generosity and say YES to a life lived generously.
fleshandblood
is a campaign to mobilise the Church to help increase the number of blood and organ donors, a call to recognise a need and respond with an act of generosity.
The campaign aims to raise the profile of donation within the Church and encourage donation as a personal gift. It seeks to equip individuals and churches as advocates for donation helping them talk about it and engage with their family, friends and communities.

At the General Synod held in Dublin in May 2014 the Motion was unanimously carried that the Church of Ireland would become an associate of the Flesh and Blood (FAB) campaign.

Clergy and Parish representatives are invited to attend the Dublin launch of the Flesh and Blood (Ireland) campaign on Friday March 6 at 4.00 pm in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. This will be followed by Choral Evensong at 5.30 pm.

Parishioners who have been personally affected by blood and organ donation are particularly encouraged to attend.
