An invitation from Stuart

Dear Friend

This year's GK Chesterton Pilgrimage will be on Tuesday 30th July. Meeting outside St George's C of E Church, Aubrey Walk, London, W8 7JG where GKC was Baptised as a baby. Then at 8am start walking to Uxbridge (15 miles approx).

1.30pm Old Rite Mass, in thanksgiving for Chesterton's Conversion, which took place 91 years ago on this day. Our Lady of Lourdes and St Michael, Osborn Road, Uxbridge, UB8 1UE. You are welcome to attend the Mass even if you are not doing the walk. Walk on to Beaconsfield (10 miles approx) where Chesterton lived, converted, died and is buried. Then we will say the prayer for the Beatification of GK Chesterton at his graveside. You can find the prayer here;

For more details or to join the pilgrimage email or DM on Twitter and/or follow on the day, @Stuart1927

"Have we now, [seventy-eight] years after Chesterton's death, reached a kind of tipping point in his reputation, of the same kind that Newman's reputation reached, leading to the opening of his cause in 1959, seventy-eight years after his death?" Dr Oddie

I'm just sending this short note now, so people have the date as early as possible. Posters, blog posts, prayer cards etc to follow.

God bless

Ps Please forward these details
