Ignited By Truth is a wonderful opportunity to come back! You will experience a sense of community sitting side-by-side with the other attendees as all of us together rediscover the gift of our Faith.

Inviting your loved one to come with you is the best way! If you have been to a past IBT conference, you could explain why you liked it. If you are excited about this year’s speakers, share what you know about them. Consider what you could do to make it possible for this person to come. Could you pay admission? Arrange childcare? Give a ride? Do what you can and leave it in God’s hands.

Email envoys@IgnitedByTruth.org and we will advise you and provide all the materials you need!

Ignited By Truth is a series of lectures geared for older students through adults. The talks, although given by dynamic speakers, would not capture the attention of young children. As a courtesy to others who are trying to listen and understand, we thought it best to set the age minimum at 10 years old. We understand that this is a great sacrifice to young families, and we thank you for your consideration.

There are many possibilities:

  • Your spouse could attend part of the conference, and you could attend the rest.
  • Pair up with another couple who also needs childcare and split the cost of a babysitter or trade off babysitting during the day.
  • Arrange play dates for your children with their friends or cousins.
  • Invite one of your parents to visit with their grandchildren for the day.
  • Join us for the Vigil Mass at 4:30pm! The whole family is welcome! No registration is required. Our vendors and ministries will also be available after Mass for all to enjoy. The conference talks will be on sale at this time.

The admission price is non-refundable. Should you be unable to attend, please consider offering your admission to a friend or as a tax-deductible gift.

Ignited By Truth is a 501(c)(3) organization supported by the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh, NC.
