NATIONAL CATHOLIC YOUTH CONFERENCE (NCYC)

Join us on a trip to Indianapolis in 2021

You are invited to come to Indianapolis with us as we join thousands of other young people from around the country for this wonderful experience of the vibrancy and life that exists in the young Church. There’s nothing like being in the midst of the young Church to bring home the message that we are part of something much bigger than our local parish communities.

NCYC is the largest gathering of Catholic youth in the country--it is a biennial three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers and their adult chaperones. Teens and their group leaders enjoy speakers, workshops, live music, rousing large sessions, reconciliation, and a beautiful closing liturgy.

Perhaps best of all, teens are part of an enormous community of peers who love Jesus and their Catholic faith, and aren't afraid to show it.  Teens and youth leaders will be assisted with harnessing the experience and bringing it back to their parishes. 

We are conscious that this November will surely continue to be impacted by the effects of COVID-19, so there are special grounds for caution and prayerful parish discernment in your deliberation whether to participate in NCYC this year.  Yet please know that we are proceeding with prudence, great hope, and passion for this pivotal experience of the young Church.  

Contact Justin White, Diocesan Director of Youth Ministry, and/or Jessica Hernandez, Coordinator of Hispanic Youth Ministry, for more information.
