The Catenian Association

Strengthening family life
Through friendship and faith

We are

  • Catholic laymen who meet monthly to enjoy each other’s company
  • Active baptised Catholics
  • Inclusive
  • A world wide organisation

We do

  • Pray at meetings
  • Look after members and families in difficulty
  • Enjoy life with families and friends
  • Meet socially and draw support from other Catholic laymen with similar values.
  • Become part of a close yet international community that offers lifelong support and friendship to members and their families.
  • Mix socially with other likeminded Catholic laymen.
  • Enjoy interesting and varied social events for members and their families.
  • Provide collective support for the church and clergy.
  • Receive spiritual and practical support in times of difficulty or need.

We meet locally

  • We meet at Boringdon Park Golf Club on the 3rd Thursday of each month
  • Socially with wives and families including quiz evenings, pub lunches, golf, boules, barbeques, skittles, walks etc.


The monthly meeting provides a time for relaxed enjoyment among supporting and faithful friends. If a Brother and his family have to relocate for any reason, the spread of Catenian Circles will often provide a ready-made and supportive Circle of friends. We are a Social Group of like-minded Catholics. We are not fundraisers although we do have a Bursary Fund to assist young people going on their gap years to do good works and those visiting Lourdes and we have a Benevolent Fund to assist our widows, orphans and those on hard times. To sum up the Catenians it is FRIENDSHIP and FELLOWSHIP.

You must be and remain, a practising member of the Catholic Church. Membership is for those over the age of 18 years.
