As a Catholic lay organisation we value and support our priests and others with a religious vocation. Apart from support by Brothers and their families on a personal level, more formal Catenian activities include:
Catenian Vocations Initiative was launched after detailed discussions with the Bishops Conference, its Committee for Ministerial Formation and the National and Diocesan Directors for Vocations.
The aims of the Initiative are: to inform, to encourage and to pray.
Each Catenian Province in the UK has a liaison officer who maintains contact with the local Diocesan Vocations Directors and the local Circles, encouraging those Circles to be actively involved in the aims of the Vocations Initiative. These liaison officers make up the Catenian Vocation Initiative who meet twice yearly in different parts of the country. The Director of the National Office for Vocation is also a member of this Initiative.
