Vote for Your Favorite Catholic Speaker



The first Support a Catholic Speaker Month was launched back in 2009 by Matthew Warner over at 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 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…

We’ve already completed the nominations process – crowdsourcing a list of over 130 Catholic speakers – and now it’s time to vote!

If you’re a Catholic blogger and want to participate by interviewing and writing about one of the top Catholic speakers, you’ll be able to sign up after you vote.
