In a distinctly Catholic setting,
the National Catholic Youth Conference invites participants
to encounter Christ, experience church,
and be empowered for discipleship.
The National Catholic Youth Conference, frequently referred to as NCYC, is a three-day event for Roman Catholic youth held in the U.S. every two years. The next NCYC is scheduled for November 21-23 in Indianapolis.
The Conference is organized by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM). During the conference, there is music, prayer, workshops, liturgy, and opportunities to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There are also concerts, dances, and a comedy club at NCYC. An area, known as the "thematic park", is set up with interactive educational and recreational activities, as well as traditional exhibits and vendor booths.
Teenagers from Youth@SaintBrigid, our parish Youth Ministry, have attended in 2015 and 2017. Participants have come back sharing how the conference was life-changing and faith-igniting.
As we begin planning for the 2019 National Catholic Youth Conference, we ask you to consider sponsoring our Youth@SaintBrigid attendance. Registration is $245.00 per teen. Please pray about this opportunity to help build the young church.
God Bless You!
Vince Buzzeo, Coordinator of Youth Ministry at St. Brigid Church
