Joining the Catenian Association
Membership is by invitation and is open only to practising Catholic laymen over the age of 21 who are financially stable and (if under retirement age) in employment at the time of joining. There are no specific requirements in terms of income or type of occupation, nor a requirement for a member’s wife to be a Catholic: many are not and participate fully in the enjoyment of Catenian life.
Potential members are either approached by, or approach, a current member when interest in the Association is explored and explained. The applicant is then invited to social functions (along with his wife and family where the event is appropriate) so he/they can experience the Catenian ethos.
