-January -


We are privileged to have author Charles Coloumbe as our guest speaker. The 28th of January is his name day, so he will speak to us a little about the significance of Blessed Charlemagne as well as at length about his new book “A Catholic Quest for the Holy Grail.” This and other titles of his will be on sale at the meeting. Please purchase them from us as these sales will help to defray the cost of this event.



G. K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was one of the 20th century's greatest writers. A convert to the Catholic Church, Chesterton wrote over a hundred books during his lifetime and published over five thousand essays in newspapers and magazines. 

One of the most quoted writers in the English language, yet one of the least studied, G.K. Chesterton foresaw and wrote about the issues we struggle with today: social injustice, the culture of death, the decline of the arts, assaults on religion, and attacks on the family and on the dignity of the human person.

He is the prophet of our times in articulating objective truths under the umbrella of faith and reason.

Fr Seán Connolly is a priest of the Archdiocese of New York born and raised in Westchester County. Reading Chesterton in college changed his life and was one of the contributing factors in his decision to give himself totally to God as a priest. He founded the "WestChestertons" in 2018.
