 SEPTEMBER 29 and 30, 2022 | PEORIA, ILLINOIS 




The enemy wants to divide us and so we must unite, march, and demonstrate to the world that we do indeed DARE TO BE CATHOLIC, and we will stop at nothing until all things are restored in Christ. It is our mission to hold our Catholic clergy accountable when they fail to teach, defend the Faith, and abide by God's law.




Many are Catholic, but few act Catholic. Archbishop Viganò has been a voice of strength, urging Catholics to stand up for the faith, no matter the cost.

Archbishop Viganò was ordained a priest in 1968 and spent most of his career working in a diplomatic capacity for the Holy See. As a priest, he served on a number of diplomatic missions before being consecrated a bishop by Pope John Paul II in 1992. Archbishop Viganò was appointed Secretary General of the Vatican City Governatorate in 2009, where he reformed the finances of Vatican City.

We are honored not only by his participation in this event, but also with his encouragement and enthusiasm for this March.



Fr. James Altman
Keynote Speaker

We live in a time when the truth is not only being attacked from the outside, but also from within. In the past few years we have seen many of our Catholic clergy bow down to the world and call it master. Few have had the courage to fight back. Few have had the guts to defend Almighty God and His Catholic Church. Fr. Altman is one of the few. 

We are proud to announce that Fr. Altman will be the keynote speaker at the first National March For Catholics. 


Thursday Speaker

John-Henry Westen is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of

He has spoken at conferences and retreats, and appeared on radio and television throughout North America, Europe and Asia. He is a consultant to Canada’s largest pro-life organization Campaign Life Coalition, and serves on the executive of the Ontario branch of the organization. He has run three times for political office in the province of Ontario representing the Family Coalition Party. 

We are honored to have John-Henry Westen speak at the March For Catholics as he is firm in his defense of the faith, not afraid to take a stand against the woke mob, and refuses to compromise. 




Doug Barry is a devoted husband, father, Catholic speaker and founder of RADIX - BATTLE READY Ministry. This initiative is an effort to be more AWARE of, PREPARED for and ENGAGED in the spiritual fight - body, mind, and soul. 

Doug believes that Catholics must be "battle ready" at all
times. "It is a life-style that is not only essential for the one living it, but it impacts many other lives. The responsibility we all have to be prepared for the fight, body, mind and soul is one that carries with it an eternal consequence. You are a soldier of Christ and others are counting on you to be faithful to this duty! To do this requires dedication and training.

Doug is of the belief that war is necessary in order to bring about peace. We agree and are glad he will be a speaker at the March For Catholics.

He has spoken at conferences hosted by CFN and The Fatima Center, as well as at the Catholic Identity Conference, and has appeared several times on the Dr. Taylor Marshall Podcast.
