The Catenian Association

The Catenian Association is a group of praticising Catholic laymen. We meet every fourth Monday of the month at the Brookfield Hotel, Emsworth for a Circle meeting and for dinner.

We have 31 brothers in the Portsmouth circle, which covers an area from Fareham in the West, to Petersfield in the North, to Emsworth and Hayling Island in the East. Portsmouth Circle is part of Province 11 in the Association click here for the Province website.

Brothers also travel to meetings at other circles in the South, and this is an opportunity to meet with a wider group of Catenian brothers.

On a regular basis we also hold ladies nights when wives are invited to attend the dinner. We have special events at Christmas and to celebrate Trafalgar Night in October.

In addition to this, we have regular pub lunches at local hostelries. We also get together for other social events such as trips out and going to the theatre.

We also share in Masses for a variety of purposes, and other religious events.
