What is the National Catholic Youth Conference?
In a distinctly Catholic setting, the National Catholic Youth Conference invites participants to encounter Christ, experience church, and be empowered for discipleship.
NCYC is the largest Catholic youth gathering in the U.S., with over 25,000 young people, clergy, religious, and adult chaperones attending from all over the country. A true pilgrimage of faith, NCYC is an exciting, biennial three-day experience of prayer, community and empowerment for Catholic teenagers addressing a wide variety of topics including Catholic spirituality and prayer, social justice issues, sexuality and leadership.
This pilgrimage features a huge interactive village where hundreds of exhibitors, musicians, games, food and learning centers of all types will be available throughout the conference.
NCYC 2019, with the theme Blessed + Broken + Given, will take place in Indianapolis, Ind., November 21 to November 23, 2017. The diocesan contingent will depart November 20.
Who should attend NCYC 2019?
The conference is open to all youth who are in eighth grade through eleventh grade in the 2018-19 school year. Adult chaperones, 21 years of age and older, must have all required diocesan clearances.
What is the registration fee?
Registration is now open for NCYC 2019. The cost for youth will be $785/person (four to six youth per room). However, youth are eligible for a Francis Fund scholarship, which drops the total cost to $550/person (four to six youth per room). Adult chaperones will cost $785/person (four adults per room).
