Motivated by a statistical problem, in (Aggarwala and Lamoureux in Am. Math. Mon., 109:371–377, 2002) it is shown how to invert a linear combination of the Pascal matrix with the identity matrix. Continuing this idea, we invert various linear combinations of the Catalan matrix, introduced in (Stanimirović et al. in Appl. Math. Comput. 215:796–805, 2009), with the identity matrix. In (Aggarwala and Lamoureux in Am. Math. Mon., 109:371–377, 2002) the occurrence of the polylogarithm function is observed. Inverses of linear combinations of the Catalan and the identity matrix are expressed in terms of Catalan numbers, the pochhammer function and the generalized hypergeometric function.
