Special Collection – Vocations - 19th September
The Collection for Vocations helps to finance the training and formation of our student priests. The formation of our Priests costs approximately £100,000 per student (7 years). At present we have three men in training for the Priesthood. The monies raised from the collection also helps to pay for the assessment process of those applying to train for the Priesthood.
