Each year we have a Priest Training Conference, attracting priests, deacons, and seminarians, not only from England and Wales, but Scotland and overseas, from Dioceses and religious orders which do not provide this training themselves.
No less important is the support we can give to the young men from England and Wales who offer themselves to the traditional Religious Institutes. In recent years the number of such men has not fallen below ten, studying with the Fraternity of St Peter, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, and the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer. Last summer, as reported in Mass of Ages, we saw the fruits of this study, in the priestly ordinations of two young English priests, one for the Fraternity and one for the Institute, who have remained in England to support their confreres in their English apostolates.
The Latin Mass Society is very proud to provide financial support for these young men while t~ey are studying. The Institutes are generous to those of their seminarians who lack financial means, but they do not have the resources of dioceses, and seminarians need support from families and friends. The Latin Mass Society provides a key component of this support, with an annual bursary and help on occasion with travel costs.
With the current, large number of seminarians to support, these bursaries cost the LMS thousands of pounds every year, and, at this moment, our Seminarians' Fund is almost empty.
Will you help?
We are appealing to our members, but there is no reason why those who are not perhaps members but who cherish Traditional Roman Catholic Liturgy to send a donation to the LMS's Seminarians' Support Appeal so that we can continue to provide this much needed help to the priests of the future.
Your generous donations will make all the difference.
You can donate by sending a cheque (made payable to ‘LMS’) to:
