Below is an excerpt from an article from Westminster Diocese about the continuing increase in the number of men preparing for the Catholic priesthood at their seminary in London.

“16 men have started studying for the Catholic priesthood at the start of the 2011 – 2012 academic year at Allen Hall, the Diocese of Westminster’s seminary in London.

The new intake brings the number of men preparing for the priesthood at Allen Hall to 50, up from 46 in 2010 and the sixth consecutive annual increase.

This number includes men who are preparing to become priests in the Diocese of Westminster, other English and overseas diocese including Lancaster, Nottingham, Johannesburg  and Toulon and religious orders including the Salvatorians, Passionists and the Congregation of the Holy Cross.”
