About The Ministry

The Catholic Centurion is a private Roman Catholic deliverance ministry that provides one-on-one prayer sessions (via phone or video chat), educational workshops, and free resources to set Christians free from any diabolical influence operating in their lives. We consider this work to be a personal charity Jesus Christ has called us to perform in order to alleviate the suffering of those who are in some form of demonic bondage. Our services are 100% free, and we do not take donations.

 
 

Letter From the founder

Welcome!

My name is Robert Alderman. I am a Catholic layman living in a beach house in Delaware. I founded The Catholic Centurion, and I am currently working as the Regional Director of Catholic Education Development for the Eastern U.S. at the Magis Center, a Catholic nonprofit founded by Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., of EWTN fame. (You can check out his T.V. program, “Father Spitzer’s Universe,” on Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 12:30 a.m. He’s my boss, and in addition to being a notable theologian, philosopher, and physicist—having debated Stephen Hawking and Deepak Chopra on Larry King Live in 2010—he actually trains exorcists for the Catholic Church.)

My primary focus at work is pitching Fr. Spitzer’s education materials to Catholic school systems and diocesan religious formation programs to stem the tide of secularism, scientism, and the alarming trend among young people who are abandoning the Catholic faith due to the apparent conflict between faith, religion, science, and reason. (I often joke with my friends that I deal with hard science and philosophy during the day, and spooky ghosts and demons at night.)

Formerly, I taught rhetoric, civil discourse, and creative writing at The Pennsylvania State University’s main campus in University Park for three years and taught at the higher education level for six years.

About 10 years ago, I suffered intense depression and misery of a demonic origin. Through Christ's merciful and loving hand, I was led to a deliverance ministry where I experienced—there's really no other word for it—an awesome and radical, life-changing spiritual freedom I had never really felt before.

Over the years, the Holy Spirit led me from one mentor to the next, where I slowly but surely was educated in the principles of spiritual warfare. Finally, over a period of three years, I was directly mentored by a Catholic deliverance minister with nearly 40 years of experience.

I was originally raised as a Protestant (Southern Baptist), but around the age of 30, I had a radical conversion to Roman Catholicism, which I now know to be the one, true, holy, apostolic Church. For more on my spiritual journey, you can find my conversion story right here.

I am a fan of Pope Francis and consider myself obedient to the Magisterium and the Holy Father in all matters theological. I do not tolerate those who are enthusiastic in their criticism of the Holy Father, nor would I consider myself to be a charismatic, although I don't have any problems with that movement personally, and on occasion, I do attend local charismatic group meetings to worship with fellow believers in the Spirit. That being said, I am a pretty normal Catholic, all things considered, with the same struggles we all have.

I am a member of Church of the Holy Cross in the city of Dover, DE. If there’s anything I can assist you with on your spiritual journey or if you’d just like to have a chat, please feel free to reach out!

May God bless and protect you as you seek deliverance from evil in all of its forms. Amen.
