People You Didn't Know Were Catholic: John Wayne


That's right folks, Marion Mitchell Morrison, better known as John Wayne, was a Catholic convert!

Raised in a Presbyterian family, Wayne was surrounded by Catholics all his life.

All three of his wives were Catholics (wait...), and he raised all seven of his children in the Church.

In 1979, shortly before his death, Wayne converted to Catholicism.

Who knows, maybe one day we'll be tossing up prayers to St. Duke?
