PEORIA, Ill. -- More than a hundred men of the Catholic faith gathered at the Peoria Riverfront for the Diocese of Peoria's Men's March & Mass.

More than a 100 men marched to Peoria's Cathedral of Saint Mary to show their love for Jesus Christ.

Dozens of local priests and the Peoria Chapter Knights of Columbus were there to speak and show support.

"Jesus Christ came, He gave His life for us and now we have Him inside of us. He's giving that reflection for us men so that we don't sit stagnant in our faith. So, this is for us to rise up with joy and conviction," said Catholic Diocese of Peoria Director of Evangelization.

A mass followed the march.
