Our 2018 Host Parish

We would like to thank our 2018 host parish, Holy Spirit Catholic Church and their pastor, Father Tom Mischler, for generously providing the space and  partnering with us for this year's ITF!  A very special thank you to Rochelle McNamara and the SWAT Youth Group for graciously sharing your time, talent, and treasure with the youth of the Diocese of Gary!

Our Story

Igniting the Fire (ITF) began many years ago as a way to allow youth to experience different parish communities in a lock-in style format at a new parish location each year.  Today, we continue that mobile tradition but have also included many retreat-style activities such as adoration, break-out sessions, and peer testimonials.
