Do 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 to pay?

The cost 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).


Is it open to Separated & Divorced Catholics?

Yes. For advice on the annulment process you may visit links on diocesan websites or www.clsgbi.org

How many members are in London & S.E. England?

Approximately one third, i.e. two hundred, of our members live in London & S.E. England, one third in N.W. England and one third in Scotland, Wales, Ireland and other regions in England. Less than half a dozen live in other countries.
