Redemptoris Mater House of Formation
Since 1991, Allen Hall has been welcoming vocations fostered in the Neocatechumenal Way to prepare them for priesthood within the Diocese of Westminster. These seminarians live for some of their time in the Redemptoris Mater House of Formation in north London while they study at Allen Hall Seminary.
Part of their formation is carried out in small communities where they share with people of all states of life: a process of rediscovery of baptism and ongoing education in faith, which Pope John Paul II recognized as, “an itinerary of Catholic formation valid for our society and for our times.”
Founded on the “Tripod” (Word of God – Liturgy – Community), the Neocatechumenal Way takes place within parishes. Through the stages of Christian initiation, it brings the faithful as well as those who have had little or no contact with the Catholic faith to a mature Christian life, making them active members of the Church and credible witnesses to the Gospel. Its statutes were approved by the Holy See in 2002.
