The National Catholic Youth Conference is a three day experience of prayer, community and empowerment for Catholic teenagers. The conference takes place every two years in Indianapolis, Ind., and draws approximately 25,000 Catholic teens. The conference includes Mass and adoration with all of those present, nationally known speakers, musicians and much more. Teens have opportunities to go deeper in learning about and experiencing their Faith during breakout sessions, as well. In addition, meaningful service projects are part of the experience. The Diocese of Saginaw organizes a pilgrimage and leads a local group to travel to NCYC every two years.
