He is the co-founder of a new high school, Chesterton Academy, in St. Louis Park, Minnesota

Executive producer of Manalive, a film based on a novel by G.K. Chesterton, which will be released in 2010.


How many Chesterton Societies are there?

Is there a worldwide "society of societies"?

GKC seems to have converted to Catholicism late in life. Is that a fair impression, and, if so, why did it take him so long to pope?

Where is GKC now in the process of canonization? What, if anything, can we do to help with the process? What are the next steps.

Chesterton wrote around 80 books, several hundred poems, some 200 short stories, 4000 essays, and several plays. Chesterton wrote--published?--15,000,000 words! Will the process of beatification require them all to be collected and read? Unpublished material?

Are you still producing new episodes for the EWTN series, "The Apostle of Common Sense"? IMDB lists 17 episodes so far.

Sometimes masquerades as Archibald Ogilvie, Earl of Glengyle (2009)!


Chesterton Academy

The Station of the Cross, from which this program originates, is broadcast in eastern Ohio, northwestern Pennsylvania, upstate New York, and in New England; it is also streamed live around the world on iCatholicRadio. We really shouldn't advertise a local Buffalo event taking place this evening, not far from the mothership of the station, at Fr. Rick Poblocki's parish, St. Josaphat, in Cheektowaga. Many of our listeners may feel that we are being provincial in announcing an event that they cannot attend.

In January, 2014, the Juniors of Chesterton Academy presented the world premiere of Come Rack! Come Rope! - a play by Dale Ahlquist and Adrian Ahlquist. The play is based on the historical novel by the English priest, Robert Hugh Benson (1871--1914), a convert to Catholicism from Anglicanism. He was the son of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
