For the Society's next meeting, on March 18th, we will be reading Chesterton's marvelous biography of "the dumb ox," St. Thomas Aquinas. RSVP for this meeting at the bottom of this post.
You can purchase the book here from the American Chesterton Society.
Since March 18th is also the vigil of the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in the Roman Catholic Church, we are going to participate in a venerable old St. Joseph's Day tradition: The Saint Joseph Table - or, well, our version of it anyway. Click "read more" to see more info about that.

Don't forget to RSVP at the bottom of the post!

For a bit of fun, rather than our usual pizza and malted beverage victuals, for March we are going to have our own St. Joseph's Table in honor of the feast. This is a nicely arranged table honoring Saint Joseph and traditionally laid out with food like fish, breads, and pastries. We'll be modifying our menu somewhat from the traditional layout. Please plan to bring either a donation or an item for the table - let us know in the RSVP form which way you'd like to contribute!
For our Saint Joseph's table, we will plan on having the following:
We aim to provide fellowship and fun in the Philadelphia area as we gather and honor the personal and literary legacy of G.K. Chesterton.
