November 16-18, 2017 in Indianapolis
The National Catholic Youth Conference is an exciting, biennial three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers and their adult chaperones. The schedule includes keynote addresses, concurrent and workshop sessions addressing a wide variety of topics. There are also opportunities for liturgy, reconciliation, prayer and worship, recreation, and special activities such as concerts, exhibits, and the interactive thematic park.

NCYC is open to high school age young people and their chaperones. Most participants are Catholic. Many youth participants are leaders in their local parishes, schools, and/or diocese, though many are just beginning to connect to their faith. Click here to learn more and to register.
