Catenian Association

The Catenian Association is an international body of proudly Catholic laymen who meet monthly in local units called Circles, to enjoy each other's company and thereby strengthen their family life and faith through friendship. It is open to practising Catholic laymen from the age of 21 years.

Our own local circle, Preston & District, has been in existence since 1950. There are a number of gentlemen from both St Andrew's and St Mary's who are members of this circle. New members are made to feel truly welcome, and by joining you will not only strengthen your faith but also your circle of friends.

For further information, including arranging a visit to one of our meetings, contact the local membership officer John Lord on 01772 722056 or
