What is the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC)?
The National Catholic Youth Conference is a powerful, biennial, three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers (of high school age) and their adult chaperones. More than 23,000 young people and their chaperones attended 2013 NCYC in Indianapolis. The 2015 National Catholic Youth Conference was held November 19-21 in Indianapolis, with the theme Here I Am Lord/Aquí Estoy Señor.
What Happens During NCYC?
The program includes keynote presentations, prayer, workshops, Mass, and opportunities to participate in reconciliation and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as recreational activities, concerts, and exhibits. A key component of NCYC is the thematic park which is a blend of traditional exhibit booths with interactive areas featuring service projects, games, recreation, live musical performances, arts, and sports.
