Welcome To St Helens Circle Catenian Website

On behalf of the St Helens Circle, the 21st Circle of the Catenian Association, I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to our website.

St Helens has an active and thriving Circle of over 60 Brothers, with an age profile from 30 to nearly 90, we have a wide breadth of ideas and experiences. Some brothers are now retired, others still with active careers, but all share the same sense of brotherhood and traditional Catholic values.

We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at The Nalgo Club St Helens, where, after a short formal meeting, we socialise together over a 2 course buffet style meal, for which no charge is made to visitors including those interested in having a look at what we are about without obligation.

We have a wide variety of social events right across the year, the highlight perhaps comes in November with the Ladies night, a fabulous black tie event in honour of our good ladies. Other events across the year are aimed at all the family and are less formal.

Please take a few moments to browse our site and feel free to leave any comments on the contact page.
