We invite youth in Grades 9-12 to NCYC!

NCYC (National Catholic Youth Conference) is a powerfully unique three-day experience of prayer, community, evangelization, catechesis, service, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers (of high school age) and their adult chaperones.

NCYC is the premiere Catholic youth event on a national scale that gathers people from all across America for a life-changing encounter with Christ.

Some of the best speakers in the Catholic space.

Celebrate liturgy and the Eucharist with tens of thousands, led by our American bishops.

Praise and entertainment led by award-winning artists.

Countless games, crafts, obstacle courses, meetups, live radio shows, challenges, and so much more.
