Men committed to their faith, their families, to those in need and to each other. The Catenians provide catholic laymen and their families with a supportive social network built on friendships developed through their shared faith and values. We enjoy the good times and share the bad by offering practical and spiritual support. Catenians are active supporters of the church, and you’ll find Catenians busy in all aspects of parish life. Fundraising is not our main aim. but each year we raise over £300,000 for good causes, and enjoy ourselves while doing so. We are major supporters of the Office for Vocations. We help young people to attend events such as the Diocesan Youth Camp and the Flame 17 Festival at Wembley in March 2017. We also sponsor young people aged 18-25 to serve others at home or overseas. Last year the Catenians supported young Catholics on projects in 53 different countries.
