Parish Placements

Each year in May the trustees consider applications in respect of candidates undertaking a parish placement as part of their exploration of a vocation to the priesthood.

In order to fall within the terms of the Trust the placement must involve a course of directed study.


Such applications must 

  • be made by the parish priest of the parish concerned
  • include details of the candidate (who should stand in the Anglo-Catholic tradition within which the fund was founded)
  • include details of the course of study to be pursued during the placement
  • include an indication of any other grant-making bodies to which application has been made in respect of the candidate, and of the outcome of such applications, where known.

Succesful candidates are asked to provide a written report towards the conclusion of their placement.
