The twelfth of May is Good Shepherd Sunday, the day we pray for priests and for vocations to the priesthood and we make the annual collection for the Priest Training Fund. This fund pays for the priestly formation of men for the Catholic priesthood. This fund also supports the ongoing enrichment and formation of our ordained priests.

There are currently 45 men studying at Allen Hall seminary, 27 of whom are for our own Diocese, and last year eight men ordained to the priesthood to serve as our future priests, including our own Fr Antonio.

Your generous donation helps ensure we can support these men who are called to be like Christ the Good Shepherd. Donation leaflets will be available in the back of the church. Please take one home, read the information, and bring it back next with your donation. Please continue to pray for vocations and for our priests. You can donate online anytime at
