Welcome To The South Liverpool Catenian Circle (No 164) Website

Welcome to The South Liverpool Catenian website. I am sure you will be saying to yourself, “ Who are the Catenians?” “What do they do?” and “If I like what I read and see, is it an organisation that I, and indeed my family, would like to be a part of?”

The Catenian Association has its origins in the early part of the 20th century and is now an international association of Catholic laymen. We are working hard to expand our membership. We are a social organisation, open to all practising catholic men over 21 years of age regardless of race, profession or level of income. South Liverpool Catenians is not geographically based and has members from both Liverpool and further afield, including the Wirral. Our monthly meetings occur on the second Monday of the month at the Hallmark Hotel, South Liverpool.

We are a group of practising Catholics who pray and play together. We are not a pressure group, nor a fundraising body, although we do have charitable goals and aspirations. The development of catholic youth is of great importance to us.

Apart from our monthly one hour meetings, the overwhelming social and spiritual activities of the association are designed for the participation and enjoyment of the whole family and our friends.

Our website has been created to service and inform three groups:
1. Current members, their family and friends,
2. Members from other Catenian Circles and their family and friends,
3. Probably most importantly, prospective new members, their family and friends.
New members are our future and with them we will evolve to meet the needs of generations to come.

Our website provides information on our social activities; past present and future, our spiritual activities and on the many other facets of Catenianism that prospective new members would wish to know.

This site will develop continuously to meet the needs of all who use it and embrace ideas put forward from all our browsers. Please enjoy your visit to our website and feel free to contact us via the email addresses on our contact page. We invite feedback about this Site also.

God Bless, Phil Gray, President: 2018-19
