Fresh from this summer’s MYE Faith Youth Rally Young People are Encouraged to “Feed the Fire”
SAGINAW — This summer, young people across the Diocese of Saginaw had an opportunity to attend the largest youth rally in diocesan history. The all-day event excited youth about their faith, and the Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw, intends to keep that spirit and energy alive. This fall, Bishop Cistone will celebrate two “Feed the Fire” Masses in hopes of bringing together youth from around the diocese. These Masses are planned for youth and include upbeat praise and worship music. Following Mass, youth have an opportunity to share dinner with Bishop Cistone, and there is additional time for prayer. These “Feed the Fire” Masses have been a tradition in the Diocese of Saginaw.
“Many of our young people had an awesome experience at the MYE Faith youth event in August,” said Mark Graveline, Director of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Saginaw. “They are looking for additional opportunities to come together in larger groups, and ‘Feed the Fire’ is a great way for them to gather together with their bishop to grow in their faith.”
“Feed the Fire” Masses will be held in September and October:
St. Elizabeth of Hungary Parish, 12835 E. Washintgon Rd., Reese

Begins With Mass at 5 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.
