Message from the President
A note from Father Ian Boyd, C.S.B.
Founder and President of the
The G. K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture, based at Seton Hall University, South Orange, N.J., was founded in 1974 by Father Ian Boyd. The purpose of the Institute is to promote the thought of G. K. Chesterton and his circle and, more broadly, to explore the application of Chestertonian ideas to the contemporary world through social and economic projects, lectures and seminars.
Father Boyd, along with Professor Quinn, Associate Editor of The Chesterton Review, and Gloria Garafulich-Grabois, Director of the Institute and Managing Editor of The Chesterton Review, organized and participated in the 2019 programme. The 2019 newsletter brings a brief report of this work as well as information about programmes and projects that are a reality because of the support of Seton Hall University and the friends of our Institute.
In 2019 the Chesterton Institute held various programmes in the United States, such as Dramatic Readings at Seton Hall University and organized an international conference in Zagreb, Croatia on the topic of “Croatia in the Modern World,” in collaboration with the Catholic University of Chile. The Institute continues to co-sponsor with Campus Ministry at Seton Hall University a Monthly Spanish Mass for the university community.
The Institute published its 45th volume of The Chesterton Review—the journal of the Institute that comes out in June and December of each year.
