Out of an abundance of caution related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Archdiocese of Chicago will not be organizing a pilgrimage to the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in 2021. We encourage parishes to participate in one of the two virtual experiences offered by NCYC:

  • Virtual participation/livestream option for groups
  • Virtual watching option for individuals

Please note that unlike previous years, NCYC is allowing individual ticket sales outside of a diocesan pilgrimage. The Archdiocese of Chicago does not encourage participation this year due to the increased risk of large gatherings and overnight events. More information on how the archdiocese will help support and enrich your virtual NCYC experience to follow!
