Priest Training Fund


Invest in the future of our Church

Pray - for vocations to the Priesthood.
Encourage - those who have the calling, give them the courage to say 'Yes'.
Donate - to support the cost of training men to the Roman Catholic Priesthood and Diaconate.

The priesthood has been essential to the life of the Church from the time of Jesus to today.
In costs £30,000 a year, for six years, to sponsor each seminarian. We therefore rely on your generosity of heart to fund our Priests of Tomorrow. Thank you.
