Archbishop Alexander Sample asked Catholics in western Oregon to pray a rosary the afternoon of June 21, at the same hour a march of Satanists was under way in Salem.

The “Luciferian March for a One World Government” at the Oregon State Capitol was part of a nationwide summer solstice action by a small group that claims to want world leadership under the power of Satan.

Some members have suggested erecting statues of Satan in place of Confederate monuments.

Numbers at the marches have been small, usually only a handful.
