The Catenian Association: Chiltern Circle.

The Catenian Association is an international brotherhood of Catholic laymen age 18+ , with nearly 10,000 members worldwide.  The Association exists to strengthen family life through friendship and faith.  The local group or “Circle” is Chiltern Circle, which has about 50 members from parishes in the area:  Aylesbury, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Leighton Buzzard and Chesham. We meet  monthly on Monday evenings at Chartridge Park Golf Club (near Chesham).  The format is a short meeting with prayers, followed by dinner. Wives of members, together with widows of deceased Brothers join us for ‘Ladies Nights’, which are held quarterly at the same venue. There is also an active social programme – which is also open to wives, families and friends, which includes: theatre visits, country walks etc plus an annual weekend away.  The Circle also raises money for the President’s charity (which changes annually), and for charities supporting the local homeless or poor. For more information, and the opportunity to come along to a dinner and meet the group, please contact Richard Byrne on 01296 487596.  Further details:
