A Message from Bishop Robert Cunningham

The IGNITE Catholic Men’s Conference is turning 10 and you are invited! Like families do, we are gathering to celebrate. Our diocesan family has gathered annually for a special day to support and strengthen Catholic men. We will do so again on March 24, 2018.

Families form a Domestic Church and fathers have a special role in guarding and guiding the family. I invite you to join with a thousand men from around the Diocese of Syracuse and beyond for a day of strengthening and praying for our own growth in holiness and for our families.

I am pleased to welcome Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, Michael Komisarek, and Dr. Peter Kreeft to the 10th annual IGNITE Catholic Men’s Conference.

Please plan to join us for the special gathering as we celebrate ten years of the IGNITE Catholic Men’s Conference.
— Most Rev. Robert J. Cunningham
