The Catenians within Clifton Diocese have once again shown their great generosity towards the work of promoting vocations within the diocese by donating over £3000. Fr Matt Anscombe, Vocations Director, was privileged to attend the Cirencester Circle meeting this week and to receive a cheque for £1500 towards vocations promotions work. The cheque was presented by Julian Oliver, President of the Cirencester Circle. Fr Matt also received a cheque for £565.35 from Roger Stroud of the Swindon Circle, as well as a personal donation from a member of the Circle for £1000. Roger, who shares a passion with Fr Matt for all things ‘cycling’, also presented Fr Matt with a special plaque of Mont Ventoux, one of the iconic cycling climbs that Fr Matt took on last year in order to promote vocations.

Fr Matt said, “I’m very grateful for the continued support of the Catenians. They have always been generous in offering financial and spiritual support to the work of vocations within the diocese. They have been very supportive of my ‘Ride for Vocations’ campaigns over the past few years too. I wish them every blessing and for their continued flourishing.

The Catenians are a body of proudly Catholic men who meet to enjoy each others company to strengthen life through friendship and faith.
