Canon John Udris has been appointed to investigate the Cause of the beloved Catholic convert

The Diocese of Northampton has appointed a cleric to investigate the possibility of opening the Cause of GK Chesterton.

In a statement released today, the Diocese of Northampton said: “The Bishop has appointed Canon John Udris, a priest of the Diocese and currently a spiritual director at St Mary’s College, Oscott, to undertake a fact-finding exercise on his behalf.”

In August this year, the American Chesterton Society released a statement announcing that Bishop Peter Doyle of Northampton was seeking “a suitable cleric” to investigate the possibility of opening up the Cause of the prolific writer.
