The National Catholic Youth Conference, frequently referred to as NCYC, is a three-day event for Roman Catholic youth. NCYC is held in U.S. cities every two years.   During the conference, there is music, prayer, workshops, liturgy, and opportunities to participate in the Sacrament of Penance. It is an exciting, action-packed, spirit-filled three-day youth rally for high school students grades 9-12. 

Stay tuned for 2023 details to be released towards the end of the year.
