The Catenians are an organisation of Catholics founded to promote friendship and support, and to strengthen Catholic family life. We are a lay organisation and strictly non-political.
Since founding the organisation has grown and there are now Catenians in Great Britain, Ireland, Malta, Israel, Zimbabwe, South Africa, India, Bangladesh and Australia, and we’re still growing!
Catenians work to support and help Catholic youth – throughout the world.
In 1980 we formed the Bursary Fund, a UK-registered charity, with the aim of offering financial help to young people about to volunteer to do something wonderful for others.
Since then we have distributed well over
and helped many thousands of young Catholics from all over the world, even from countries where there is no Catenian presence.
