National Catholic Youth Conference

National Catholic Youth Conference

November 16-18, 2023

Indianapolis, IN

In a distinctly Catholic setting, the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) invites high-school-aged participants to encounter Christ, experience Church, and be empowered for discipleship. NCYC is produced by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM), a member organization comprised of youth ministry leaders across the United States, and includes opportunities for spiritual growth, prayer, learning, and service.


Why Participate?

NCYC ignites the faith of young people. Join your voice to the 10,000 youth and young adults who will proclaim that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is still relevant, life-giving, and true. What you learn and experience at the single largest gathering of Catholic youth in the country will transform how you and your faith community witness the Lord every week for the rest of your life.
