A 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 the NCYC
The National Catholic Youth Conference is a powerful, biennial, three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers (of high school age) and their adult chaperones. More than 23,000 young people and their chaperones attended 2017 NCYC in Indianapolis.
The 2019 National Catholic Youth Conference is November 21-23, back in Indianapolis, with the theme Blessed . Broken . Given / Bendito . Partido . Entregado.
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 park which is a blend of traditional exhibit booths with interactive areas featuring service projects, games, recreation, live musical performances, arts, and sports.
