The priesthood has always been essential to the life of the Church, from the time of Jesus until today. Good Shepherd Sunday is the day we pray for vocations, for our priests, and take up the Priest Training Fund second collection.
This fund pays for the formation of men to become priests in our Archdiocese. We are blessed to have 6 men in formation for the priesthood for our Archdiocese. However, it costs £30,000 a year to sponsor each seminarian. They study for 6 years before being ordained a Catholic priest.
We therefore rely on your generous support and prayers. Please support our priests of the future with a gift today:
- Donate online: www.rcaos.org.uk/donate/PTF
- Tel. weekdays 9am – 5pm: 020 7960 2504
- Cash/cheque – please use the Priest Training Fund envelopes at the back of church.
