 Holy Fire Great Lakes: A Middle School Event Like No Other!

Sunday, October 13, 2019
Stroth Center at Bowling Green State University, OH
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (Full Schedule Listed Below)

The producers of the nation's largest Catholic youth event, NCYC, invite young people in sixth through eighth grade to a one-day experience of dynamic speakers, music and the sacrament of the Eucharist like they have never before witnessed. At Holy Fire, young people will be invited and challenge to embrace their baptismal call and embrace the relevant and powerful gospel of Jesus.
Why Attend Holy Fire?

Pope Francis challenges all of us to become missionary disciples who courageously live out our faith. Through Holy Fire, we seek to gather and grow the emerging faith of thousands of young people, accompanied by parents and leaders, so young people see themselves as active witnesses of Christ and engaged members of the Catholic Church. 

Who Should Attend?
All sixth through eighth grade students who attend youth ministry and/or Confirmation preparation. Parents are invited to chaperone this event, but you must have all of the required state and diocesan clearances

How Do I Register?
1. Complete the Holy Fire Registration Form.
2. Complete the Smart Waiver Form.

How Much Does It Cost?
The price for this event is $50 for sixth and seventh grade students. If you have selected Holy Fire as your Confirmation Preparation option the cost is free. If you are in eighth grade and this is not your Confirmation Preparation option, but you still wish to attend Holy Fire, the cost is then the full $50.
Registration ends September 13.
