What It Is

The National Catholic Youth Conference is an exciting, biennial three-day experience of prayer, catechesis, community, and discipleship. Catholic teenagers and their adult chaperones learn about the Catholic faith through keynote presentations and workshop sessions that address a wide variety of topics. The Eucharist is celebrated daily and the sacrament of reconciliation is offered in addition to recreation and special activities such as concerts, exhibits, and the interactive thematic park. Below is a link to informational videos provided by the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry.

Who Attends

NCYC is open to high school age young people (parish youth groups, scout troops, athletic teams, Catholic high school students) and their chaperones. Many youth participants are leaders in their local parishes, schools and/or diocese, though many are just beginning to connect to their faith. Adult participants include pastors, directors of religious education, youth ministry leaders, coaches, Catholic school teachers, campus ministers, parents, and bishops. Some attendees may have participated in previous national or international events such as the World Youth Day. Many are experiencing this type of gathering for the first time.
