Priest Training Fund

Coronavirus Update

As we are unable to gather in our churches at this time to celebrate Mass, because of the pandemic, there will not be a collection this year for the Priest Training Fund.  

More than ever, donations to the Priest Training Fund are gratefully received. If you wish to make a donation, please complete the form below.

 

You can read or listen to Bishop John Sherrington's reflection for Vocations Sunday in a time of pandemic. Please click here.

Also, here is the link to the Seminary News to find out more about our seminarians in Allen Hall.

 


They said Yes to the call

Will you say Yes to supporting our priests in training?

 

The motto of Allen Hall, where the men training for the ordained priesthood live and study, is Vivamus in spe – May we live in hope.

Now, more than ever, as the nation faces an unprecedented challenge and there are so many people in desperate situations across our Diocese, that hope is needed.

Our seminarians work in parishes, schools, hospitals and hospices, as well as prisons, with refugees, and anywhere where a Catholic presence can make a contribution.

In all they do, they strive to be formed in the image of Him who came not to be served, but to serve. They come from a wide range of backgrounds, countries, and religious congregations. However, despite their differences, their desire to be formed in the image of Christ unites them, and creates an even stronger bond to their faith.

We currently have 46 men in formation at Allen Hall, including 25 for Westminster Diocese. Another two are pursuing their studies in Rome. To form and educate a new priest costs an average of £25,000 per year: that’s around £150,000 over the total course of training.

 

Can you help to support our seminarians in their vital mission?
