Igniting our Faith with Apostolic Zeal 

The Ignite! Campaign raises up the dignity and image of God of everyone in our Diocese. As one body of Christ, it gives each of us the opportunity to invest in our priests, women religious, deacons, mothers, fathers, teachers, catechists, and children, who are the foundation upon which the Church and greater community are built.
