1 – 2 -3… IGNITE!

IGNITE_LOGO
What better event to launch the use of our new Syracuse Deacons Community @deaconspeaking Twitter Team account than to share our diocesan Catholic Men’s Conference, IGNITE!  There was so much to share at this year’s event that coincided with the Solemnity of The Annunciation.

T-Shirt_Logo TweetThe excitement among the nearly 1,000 men gathered was worthy of sharing. This ninth year is based on a perfect formula for success:

Spiritual Graces – Mass, Reconciliation & Adoration

Catholic Challenges – 3 Very Dynamic and Different Speakers throughout the day

Community – Ample breaks, plentiful lunch, solid vendor support with plenty of space to mix and meet others with shared interests.

Six tweets during the day captured many of the conference highlights. And now, other deacons in the Diocese of Syracuse are joining the Twitter Team to ramp up our evangelization efforts.

IGNITE 2015 – Syracuse,  New York
Steve Ray is at the podium now with a talk focused on St. Paul. Wow! Connecting us with a feisty Apostle Paul. Just 40 minutes ago Bishop Robert Cunningham opened this year’s Ignite Catholic Men’s with Mass and a Homily emphasizing the role of the father in the family, who is strong because he cares!

1. What does it mean to suffer for Christ?
2. If Paul was here today speaking, talking about today’s culture, what challenge would he offer you personally?

Being Strong – The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Each year at Ignite, hundreds of men participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. A small army of priests is on hand as men que in the mezzanine. God’s grace is so manifest in the sacraments here at the Ignite Catholic Men’s Conference!

Curtis Martin is giving all of us… 925 strong… a reality check. The Catholic Community is in place, but it’s not alive. “Where is the master circuit breaker that needs to be flipped on to bring it to life?

30 million have left the Catholic Church in the last generation. Food for thought!

Curtis Martin Wrap-up: Three questions that roll out of the presentation.
1. What was your 4:00?
2. What area of the culture could you set on fire?
3. How will you gather a “band of brothers”?

Coming up: Fr. Larry Richards

Raising the bar: “In 5 years there will be a Holy War in this country!”

Fr. Larry spesks with authority… with conviction and challenges each is to be crucified in Christ. He urges us to pray: “Read the Bible each day… in the morning, no Bible, no bread… at night, no Bible, no bed.”
