IN A DISTINCTLY CATHOLIC SETTING,
THE NATIONAL CATHOLIC YOUTH CONFERENCE
INVITES PARTICIPANTS
TO ENCOUNTER CHRIST, EXPERIENCE CHURCH,
AND BE EMPOWERED FOR DISCIPLESHIP.

Every other year, Catholic young people and their chaperones–youth ministers, campus ministers, parents, catechists, priests, coaches, and scout leaders–come together to pray, learn, and grow in their faith. In addition to opportunities to receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and penance. NCYC participants attend general and breakout sessions on topics relevant to living as a disciple of Christ in today’s world, visit with organizations that provide resources and other support to youth and youth ministry, spend time in personal and communal prayer, and engage in service to others.

Youth Ministry Programs by Parishes

YCET

Diocesan Youth Commission Evangelization Team (YCET) consists of high school age youth who are committed to serving Jesus Christ through a life of prayer and service and by proclaiming His gospel to fellow students. YCET members also officially represent the youth of the diocese. They maintain communication with the Bishop and diocesan officials. They are the “voice of youth” on Diocesan Commissions and Boards.

Reminder: All adults must be VIRTUS certified to work with youth. More information can be found on the Safe Environment webpage.
