Challenging Today’s Young Disciples for Tomorrow!
Every other year, Catholic young people and their adult leaders come together to pray, learn, and grow in their faith for the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC). In addition to opportunities to receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation, NCYC participants attend general and breakout sessions on topics relevant to living as a disciple of Christ in today’s world, learn from 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.

The Diocese of La Crosse will be organizing a trip to join 25,000 Catholic youth in Indianapolis, IN. We will pray together, learn together and most importantly grow together as Disciples!

Fully Alive

The National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC for short) is a biennial gathering of high school youth from around the United States. It is an opportunity for you to experience the true universality of the Catholic Church by praying, going to Mass, and experiencing Christ in Reconciliation and Adoration with other Catholics from around the country.

2023 Theme: Fully Alive

Genesis 1:23-27 – God created mankind in His image; in the image of God, he created them

John 10:10 – I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly
