The Catholic Union’s St Thomas More Circle was launched in 2019 and is a Circle of Donors who provide much needed financial support to the work of the Catholic Union whose patron is St Thomas More.
Founded in 1870 by the Duke of Norfolk and other Catholic peers, the aim of the Catholic Union is to provide a voice for Catholic lay people through sensible, balanced and informed contributions to public debate and legislation. The Union brings together the expertise of the laity with Catholic members of both Houses of Parliament. The Union has consultative status to the Bishops Conference of England and Wales and makes a vital Catholic contribution to the national conversation.
The Union’s success in providing a clear voice in Parliament and the media for Catholics is limited by critical resources. In order to truly succeed for Catholics in the country, the Union must be able to draw on not only our professionals and experts who give so much on a voluntary basis but also on the services of paid specialists.
The support of members of the St Thomas More Circle is vital in enabling the Catholic Union to employ three key professional staff: a Director, a Deputy Director and a Head of External Affairs. This team has transformed the organisation by greatly increasing our impact in Parliament and the Public Square.
Please join the St Thomas More Circle today and give us the support that we need to continue our work!
