Societies, Clubs and Associations

We have a number of clubs and societies where good works, fellowship and community spirit go hand in hand.

If you would like more information or are interested in being part of this aspect of our community please read on.



St Vincent De Paul SocietySt Vincent De Paul Society

The St Vincent de Paul Society (“SVP”) is an international Christian voluntary organization dedicated to tackling poverty and disadvantage by providing direct practical assistance to anyone in need. Active in England & Wales since 1844, today it continues to address social and material need in all its many forms.

For example in Wallingford, the number of people helped during the year was approximately 250 visits of people and about 150 lifts to Church were given, but never enough, never quite well enough, soon enough or often enough, but we try.

If you are interested in being involved or need help, please select your nearest society below:-


The Catenian AssociationThe Catenian Association is an international brotherhood of practising Catholic laymen who meet socially, at least once a month, in local branches, known as Circles. Members refer to each other as 'brother'. This reflects the strength of the mutual support they give to each other and their families, which is based on the shared values of their Catholic belief and practice.

In an increasingly secular society, the Association provides a sociable and supporting haven (an oasis of calm) for those facing challenges to their beliefs and moral values in their business, professional and family lives. Through their membership Catenians are helped to enjoy and fulfill their various vocations in life. Firstly as baptised Christians and also in their family as a husband and father; in their chosen profession or workplace; within the civil community and within the church.

The Association's name is derived from the Latin 'Catena' (a chain) with the Circles being the links in the chain. The emblem consists of a continuous chain of links surrounding a cross. This symbolizes that our Catholic faith is at the centre of all we do.
