An appeal from Abbé Matthew Bird

Dear faithful,

God willing, I wish to become a priest in the Institute of Christ the King. By His grace and with the help of your prayers and financial support, I have completed my first year of studies at our seminary in Gricigliano, Italy, and I am about to begin my second year of priestly formation. Thank you very much for your prayerful and generous support this past year.

Each year, it costs a seminarian £7,000 to study for the priesthood with the Institute. We are asked to contribute by raising what we can towards this goal. Would you consider helping me with my second year of seminary? To donate, please visit my GoFundMe page:


Thank you all for your generous support. I assure you of my prayers for you each day in grateful return. God bless you!
