Why Support the Clergy Training Fund?

The CTF exists to pay for the formation of the future priests and permanent deacons for the Archdiocese of Birmingham.


It costs approximately £200,000 over seven years of formation for one new priest (£25,000 - £30,000 per seminiarian each year). This is a substantial amount of money, but it is essential because it covers seminary fees, living costs, travel and study materials.


We rely solely on your generosity. Anything you can give - whether big or small - will help to provide future priests and deacons for our parishes.


Above all, we ask you to pray for an increase in vocations for the Archdiocese of Birmingham.

How you can give: 
  • Online by debit or credit card

  • Regular giving

  • One-off donations 

  • Legacies

Gift Aid

Why not Gift Aid your donations at no extra cost to you?

If you are a UK taxpayer, this simple system allows tax to be reclaimed on all your donations to the Clergy Training Fund. This means for every £1 you give, the CTF gets an extra 25p from the Government (at no extra charge to you).
