Why we're raising money
Weare blessed by the 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 TrainingFund invests in men who have answered the call to serve the people of God.There is no support from the State to help pay for the years of training wherefaith, character and ability are tested.
Priests live a modestlife – but high-quality training comes at a price. On average the Archdiocese of Cardiff invests £162,000 training each seminarian over six years.Yet following ordination a priest may give back more than 40 or 50-years’service, so the investment brings a considerable return.
