Priest Training Fund

They said Yes to the call

Will you say Yes to supporting our priests in training?

What motivates seminarians to offer themselves for the ordained priesthood when the Church reminds us that all the baptised people of God have a priestly vocation?  In their own words:

 “I wanted to bring the joy of our faith to the lives of the people all around me.”

 “We have strongly sensed God’s love drawing us in the direction of an uncommon sacrifice so that nothing else will satisfy. As Jesus gave his life for his Bride, so we offer ourselves also for the sake of his Church and its mission in the world.”

The Priest Training Fund pays for the priestly formation of men who have answered the call to Priesthood to serve the people of God. 

On average it costs £25,000 a year per man, per year of training – that’s about £150,000 to form and educate a new priest, who makes a lifetime commitment to Christ and the Church. And the Priest Training Fund also supports our priests in their ongoing education and formation after ordination.

There are currently 45 men studying at Allen Hall seminary, 27 of whom are for our own Diocese.  Your gift ensures that we can provide training for these men responding to Christ’s call to dedicate their lives to serve God’s people. 

May we ask you to do two things?

Be as generous as you can in your support of this appeal. 

And continue to pray for vocations and our seminarians.

 Thank you very much.
