This year’s conference will be July 11-14, 2019.
IMPORTANT UPDATE—The location to Ignite has changed for the foreseeable future. It will no longer be in Kentucky, but has now moved to the University of Alabama in Huntsville, AB. This is a minimum of 4 hours and 20 minutes away.
This is still within driving distance from Kentucky, and can now serve as a chance to see some sites on the Wednesday before or the Sunday afternoon late to EWTN or more! (provided we can find lodging of some sort.) We are looking into renting a bus with several other groups, so check back for updates!
Click HERE for the paperwork & registration! Registration opens on February 1, and we will need final commitments no later than Friday, March 30 @ 3pm to get the Early Bird Price. All paperwork must be turned into John Sohl in the St. Athanasius Parish Center at this time.
Cost is $260 per person, but we are only asking for $200 each. Make checks payable to St. Athanasius with “CoL – Ignite” in the memo line. Final payment is due at the Mandatory Parent Meeting on Wednesday night, May 22, 2019—6pm @ St. Luke.

IGNITE YOUR TORCH is a Catholic youth conference where young religious and priests seek to evangelize young people through personal interaction. It is an opportunity to make new friendships in Christ, to receive the sacraments, to meet and talk to young priests and religious, and to worship, pray, learn, and recreate together. Ignite Your Torch is Eucharistic-centered, devoted to Our Blessed Mother, and catechetical in nature, and teaches youth practical ways to build up the culture of life.
Ignite Your Torch is a project of Catholics United for Life. It is a collaborative grassroots effort of Priests, Religious, Youth Workers and Parents. It has transformed the lives of thousands of youth, occuring each summer since 2005.
