On Fire With Faith (formerly Fire At The Beach) is a biennial conference sponsored by the Office of Catechesis and Christian Initiation in the Diocese of Charleston. It is an event which attracts nationally and internationally known keynoters and presenters who have expertise in a variety of scriptural, theological, liturgical, spiritual and catechetical fields. While the first conference (Fire At The Beach held in Myrtle Beach, SC in 2005) was designed primarily for parish catechists and youth ministers, the conference has grown into a celebration of faith and an opportunity for formation for all Catholic adults. 2016’s On Fire With Faith, which has been ‘rekindled’ from the cancellation due to the October 2015 flooding, will be held in conjunction with the Diocesan Hispanic Ministries Conference.
This year’s program will be offered in a one day format. There will be two keynotes and two rounds of workshops (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) interspersed with exhibit time and lunch. The closing liturgy will be celebrated by Most Reverend Robert Guglielmone, Bishop of Charleston, at 5:00 p.m.
The listing of speakers and vendors will be updated periodically and descriptions of the workshops will be posted as the time for On Fire With Faith REKINDLED draws closer.
