Priest Training Fund Appeal

We are blessed by those called to train for the priesthood who provide the future of our church

Those who decide to train for the priesthood have made a commitment to their faith. Without their dedication and sacrifice our community would be all the poorer.

The Priest Training Fund invests in men who have answered the call to serve the people of God. Priests are called to live simple lives but high-quality training comes at a price.

On average the Archdiocese of Cardiff invests £189,000 in the formation of each seminarian over seven years. Yet following ordination a priest may give back more than 40 or 50-years’ service, so the investment brings a considerable return.

We depend on the generosity of people within the diocese as there is no public funding for the years spent in seminary.

How can I help?

From here you can donate to the Priest Training Fund. Alternatively, you can donate in your parish where Gift Aid envelopes are available. We are very grateful for your support, thank you.
