Support a Catholic Speaker Month Nominations



Back in 2009, my friend Matthew Warner launched the first ever “Support a Catholic Speaker Month” over at his blog, Fallible Blogma. The idea was to allow people to nominate and vote for the favorite Catholic speakers and then have Catholic bloggers around the world blog about each of the top 100 speakers. The goal was simple: to raise awareness about the many Catholic Speakers out there and to support them”. That year over 3,000 people voted and 100 bloggers participated. Then in 2012, Brandon Vogt took over the reigns. Once again, Catholics around the world were able to nominate and vote on their favorite Catholic speakers and Catholic bloggers wrote about each speaker. In 2012, over 11,000 people voted! This year, they’ve handed “Support a Catholic Speaker Month” over to ProjectYM…

When we launch “Support a Catholic Speaker Month” in October, we’ll need Catholic bloggers willing to profile one of the top Catholic speakers.
