As Catenians we support our Clergy and Vocations to the Priesthood and the Religious Life. Catenians do this in four ways. Firstly by prayer at every meeting. Secondly by arranging Catenian Masses throughout the year. Thirdly by formal support for Vocations via the Vocations Initiative, and finally by monetary support of the National Office for Vocation.

Each year, dozens of Catenian Provinces, hundreds of Catenian Circles and thousands of Catenians donate tens of thousands of pounds collectively for Vocations. the Diaconate and the Religious life.


Every Catenian Circle sponsors Masses annually including those for deceased Catenian brothers and widows. Our Catenian Provinces - (a name we Catenians give to a geographical collection of Circles) - also sponsor Masses. Catenian Provinces come together to have Masses celebrated - including our 'Six Provinces Mass' held in London at Westminster Cathedral each year.

Every Catenian Circle has a President and once a year he sponsors a Mass on President's Sunday, a day of special local celebration for Catenians, their wives and their families.
