Vision for the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC)

In a distinctly Catholic setting the National Catholic Youth Conference invites participants to:

  • Encounter Christ.
  • Experience church.
  • Be empowered for discipleship.
A Description of NCYC

The National Catholic Youth Conference is a powerful, three-day experience of prayer, community, evangelization, catechesis, service, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers (of high school age) and their adult chaperones.

The 2022 National Catholic Youth Conference is November 10-12, in Long Beach, California, with the theme Walking on Water.

This year’s theme is inspired by the story of Jesus calling Peter to come out onto the water despite being in the eye of the storm (Matt 14:29). NCYC 2022 is an invitation to step out and trust the Lord.

What Happens During NCYC?

The program includes keynote presentations, prayer, workshops, Mass, and opportunities to participate in reconciliation and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as recreational activities, concerts, and exhibits. A key component of NCYC is the thematic environment which is a blend of traditional exhibit booths with interactive areas featuring service projects, games, recreation, live musical performances, arts, and sports.
