A Message from Bishop Robert Cunningham

It’s All Possible with God”

As men from the Syracuse Diocese and beyond look to the annual gathering at the IGNITE Catholic Men’s Conference, it is a great blessing of divine providence to celebrate on the Feast of the Annunciation. On March 25, 2017, we will meet again at the SRC Center on the campus of Onondaga Community College for a day of prayer, fellowship and inspiration featuring Chris Horn, Mark Houck, and Msgr. Jim Lisante, who was with us in 2011.

Just as Mary and Joseph were presented with an amazing responsibility at the Annunciation, so each of us has been entrusted with a specific responsibility to carry Christ to the world. I look forward to praying with you as we are strengthened and comforted by the Archangel’s promise that “It’s all possible with God.
— Most Rev. Robert J. Cunningham

Participant feedback from last conference

I really liked that 10 minute video from the Bishop from Phoenix, Arizona! It hit me that I should try & send it to my friends.” – Joe, Rome

“The people who came with us all thought it was great. The first timers were really impressed. A couple of the guys who came are looking to get together for a men’s group.” - Ken, Binghamton

“Fr. Joe Freedy was amazing.” -Gary, E. Syracuse

“I found Randy Raus interesting and strongly agree that teen/youth involvement is important. He gave me very good food for thought. Although I am not ready for a Randy Go God chant he did get me thinking what about me and what about now?” - Joe, Binghamton
