Event Details:

What Is IGNITE for Life? IGNITE for Life is an opportunity for all of those who believe in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to come together to pray and stand in public witness for the defense of unborn children in Kansas and throughout the United States. The IGNITE for Life event takes place every year near January 22nd which is the National Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. 

IGNITE will kick off with Praise & Worship music from the band All Things I Am, followed by dynamic messages from pro-life speakers. We will then celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with the Bishops of Kansas along with many Kansas priests.  Finally, all are invited to march to the state capitol to join the Kansans for Life Rally.  Stay tuned for a potential opportunity to join in Eucharistic Adoration at a nearby Catholic Church.

Lunch Options:

There will be a 15-20 break between Mass and the start of the march to the Capitol. Unfortunately, no food is allowed inside the Topeka Performing Arts Center per our contract. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We realize that some will need to eat something if planning to march to the Capitol and take part in the Kansans for Life Rally or a Capitol tour. Here are some options to consider:

  • Encourage your students to eat a hearty breakfast before coming to IGNITE or provide a snack on their drive to the event.
  • Have your students pack a snack or sandwich in their coat pocket to eat during the march to the capitol.
  • Use the 20 minute break after Mass to eat a sandwich in your bus/cars or outside the TPAC before the March.

Mater Dei-Assumption Church (across from south steps of capitol) will also offer sack lunches for a freewill donation from 11:00 am – 2:30 pm.  Please contact Jeanne Gawdun at jeanne@kfl.org for details and reservations.
