Chesterton Group

The Pint, The Pipe & The Cross!

The Chesterton group meets on the third Tuesday of the month 7:00p at the OLV Rectory to discuss the thoughts and writings of the English apologist, writer and journalist, G.K. Chesterton. All are welcome.

Meeting Dates:

A typical evening begins with a prayer followed by each participant offering a G.K. Chesterton quote (don't worry if you haven't had time to read some Chesterton and find a quote, you can find some really good one's on the Quotations page of the American Chesterton Society).

After we finish with the quotes, all bets are off! 

Be prepared for a lively evening of free flowing conversation ranging over literature, theology, science, politics and, oh yes, the thoughts and writings of the Apostle of Common Sense, G.K. Chesterton.

We've also been known to discuss the writings of Chesterton's close friend and collaborator Hilaire Belloc, as well as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and anyone else the participants happen to be reading at the time.

So come on over to the OLV Rectory for a good old fashioned bull session, on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00p. 

To get an email reminder about upcoming meetings contact our Chesterton Group president, Fr Doug McGonagle, to get on the mailing list.
