Third Tuesday of each Month
The Chesterton Group meets from 6:30 - 8:00pm on the third Tuesday of the month at the Holy Trinity Rectory, 133 Main Street in Greenfield MA.
N.B.: As of July 1st our host, Fr Doug McGonagle, is moving to Most Holy Redeemer (MHR) Parish in Hadley. Beginning in July the Chestern Group meetings will take place at the MHR Rectory (off the parking lot in back of the Church), 120 Russell St, Hadley 01035.
A typical evening begins with a prayer followed by a call for a G.K. Chesterton quote (don't worry if you haven't had time find a quote, you can find some really good one's on the Quotations page of the American Chesterton Society). The conversation thene lunches off the quote. Only rules are, no dominating the discution and the conversation must 'organically' flow from one topic to another. No leap-frogging. When the conversation begins to flag, the moderate will call for another quote and off we go again.
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.
There's no commitment to attend every meeting, come whenever your schedule allows. 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. All are welcome to attend. For more info or to get on our "remember there's a Chesterton Group meeting this week" email list contact Fr Doug McGonagle.
