all members receive full lists, updated monthly?
Yes. There are no separate classes of membership. All members receive monthly updated lists.
Those receiving monthly bulletin updates by email are sent the full
lists of members' entries, followed by updates, including those who do not have internet access. Similarly
those receiving the bulletins by post are sent the full lists of male/female members as appropriate, again
followed by monthly updates.
Is it confidential?
Yes. Each member is allocated a unique box number and their full
name, postal address and telephone number are not made available to other members. Nor is their email address unless they
specifically request that it be included in their entry. All postal communications are sent in plain envelopes, with no indication
on the outside that they are from Catholic Singles.
How safe is it?
All members are required to sign to the effect that they are single, practising Catholics, and
then confirm their postal addresses by acknowledging a welcome letter. This, together with the £5 charitable donation,
discourages applicants from joining casually. Each member is also sent an Instructions & Advice leaflet advising
on sensible steps to take.
What is the cost and are there any extras
of joining is £20 to have an entry and receive the monthly bulletins by email for six months. Of this £5 is donated
to charity. The first bulletin, with the full list of entries, is posted automatically, but for the 6 further bulletins to
be posted rather than emailed there is a charge of £6 to cover printing & postage.
Are there members in Ireland, and how much do they pay?
Yes, we have members in Ireland, north & south. Many
pay in sterling, but for those who would prefer to pay in Euros the cost of joining for six months is 10 Euros (or 20 Euros
to receive all the monthly bulletins by post).
Yes. For advice on the annulment process you may visit links on diocesan websites or www.clsgbi.org
Is it open to Separated & Divorced Catholics?
