Welcome to Allen Hall

Vivamus in Spe

Who are we?

We are the seminary of the Diocese of Westminster where about 61 men are currently in formation for ministry as Catholic priests. Situated in central London, the seminary stands in the tradition of the Douai Martyrs who gave their life for the Catholic faith in this country.

Our Programme of Formation

At Allen Hall, we we try to make real the words spoken by Pope Benedict XVI when he addressed seminarians at the World Youth Day in Sydney: ‘Do not be afraid to say ‘yes’ to Jesus, to find your joy in doing his will, giving yourself completely to the pursuit of holiness, and using all your talents in the service of others.’

Meet the Formators

Allen Hall is served by a formation team responsible for the formation of the men from all over the word to serve the Church in England & Wales. This team help the men discern their vocation to the priesthood and support them throughout their years of study.
