Meet at 8am, outside St George's C of E Church, Aubrey Walk, London, W8 7JG, where GKC was Baptised as a baby. Walk to Uxbridge (15 miles approx).
1.30pm Old Rite Mass (which will be a High Mass due to the support of The Latin Mass Society), at Our Lady of Lourdes and St Michael, Osborn Road, Uxbridge, UB8 1UE, in thanksgiving for Chesterton's Conversion, which took place 94 years ago on this day. You are welcome to attend the Mass even if you are not doing the walk.

Then stroll on to Beaconsfield (12 miles approx) where Chesterton lived, converted, died and is buried. Stopping at a pub for a quick drink on the way. We will say the prayer for the Beatification of GKC at his graveside. Find the prayer here and then end the day with a drink in what was GK Chesterton's local pub.

G.K. Chesterton, A Saint?
Yes. Well I think so, and even more so now that the book of the talks of the Chesterton Society's 2009 Oxford Conference has been published. You can order the book The Holiness of GK Chesterton here.
The most important thing about the Catholic G.K. Chesterton Society is that it is not. It is not a society but merely a website to promote prayer to the said G.K. Chesterton.
