An Invitation from Dale Ahlquist

Dim drums throbbing, in the hills half heard…

—Lepanto by G.K. Chesterton

Just as Don John of Austria was called to defend Christendom at the history-changing Battle of Lepanto, I believe we are called to fight and defeat the newest enemy of our civilization.

The degradation of our culture has inflicted damage on young, formative minds. In the midst of the pandemic and nation-wide violence, this evil has accelerated. Of great concern is the devastating impact on our Catholic schools, many disappearing for lack of funds.

Yet, praise God, we are experiencing what approaches a miracle. In the midst of this darkness, we have been opening new Catholic, classical high schools through the Chesterton Schools Network. Demand is overwhelming and we now have 45 schools operating across the United States, Canada, Iraq, and Sierra Leone, with a dear sister school in Italy. Another 17 schools are slated to open next fall.

The Chesterton Schools Network has been reclaiming Christendom by teaching Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. As the demand and need for our schools is exploding, we need help to create a strong and sustainable source of monthly donations to support them. That is why we have established the elite fighting corps, The Knights of the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton. 

I am calling upon you to become a Knight or Lady of the Society. Please choose from one of the monthly giving levels above and become a joyful warrior with us!

As always, let’s keep praying for one another.

Your servant,

Dale Ahlquist
