A report of the 2022 Pilgrimage appeared in the second issue of GK’s Meekly, to receive a copy email

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.

It seems that the Church would like some proof that GKC is a saint. Please, therefore, do ask him for a miracle. Please print off some prayercards and off we go.

About Us

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 and the Pilgrimage.
