“Called to Glory” is the theme of this year’s National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) – November 17-19, 2011 in Indianapolis. NCYC is the largest Catholic youth gathering in the U.S. NCYC is an exciting, biennial, three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers and their adult chaperones. The schedule includes general sessions and workshops addressing a wide variety of topics as well as opportunities for reconciliation, daily liturgy, and special activities such as concerts, a dance, and comedy club. The thematic park is a unique venue incorporating traditional exhibits with interactive educational and recreational activities. More than 20,000+ youth and adults are expected to make the pilgrimage to Indianapolis for three days of catechesis, prayer, service, and recreation.
