all members receive full lists, updated monthly?
Yes. There are no
separate classes of membership. All members receive monthly updated lists.
receiving monthly bulletin updates by email are sent the full lists of members, 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.
Is it confidential?
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?
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 £10 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?
of joining is £30 to have an entry and receive the monthly bulletins by email, for one year. Of this £10 is donated
to charity. After the first year, the renewal cost is just £10 per year. The first bulletin, with the full list, is
posted automatically, but for the 12 further bulletins to be posted rather than emailed there is a small annual charge
of £9 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 one year is 20 Euros (or 30 Euros to receive all the monthly
bulletins by post).
