Saturday 30th July 1.30pm Sung Old Rite Mass (Music sponsored by 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.

For those who wish to, you can then join the pilgrimage walk to Beaconsfield (12 miles approx) where Chesterton lived, converted, died and is buried. We will say the prayer for the Beatification of GKC at his graveside. The prayer can be found, in a number of languages here; www.catholicgkchestertonsociety.co.uk
Or join us at 9.15am. outside the abortion centre at 87 Mattock Lane, Ealing, W5 5BJ where we stop for a few minutes prayer before walking on to Uxbridge along the canal.
If you’d really like to walk the full 27 miles, meet us at 7.30am outside St George's C of E Church, Aubrey Walk, London, W8 7JG, where GKC was Baptised as a baby.
Send us names of people for us to pray for along the way and for more details or to join the pilgrimage email; firstname.lastname@example.org and follow on Twitter on the day, @Stuart1927 #GKCWalk
Stuart will do the walk to raise money for Good Counsel
