The National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) is a powerful, biennial, three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers (of high-school age) and their adult chaperones.

The schedule includes keynote presentations, prayer, workshops, liturgy, and opportunities to participate in reconciliation and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as recreational activities, concerts, and exhibits. A key component of NCYC is the thematic park which is a blend of traditional exhibit booths with interactive areas featuring service projects, games, recreation, live musical performances, arts and sports. NCYC is sponsored by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, Inc. (NFCYM).

Attending NCYC is more than just a trip; it can be a life-changing experience. The goals of a pilgrimage, especially for young people, should reflect the general goals for youth ministry found in Renewing the Vision. As a reminder, those goals are:

  • To draw young people into responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community
  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today
  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person
  • All activities for NCYC will take place at the Lucas Oil Stadium and Indianapolis Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana on November 18-20, 2021. The Diocese of Scranton pilgrimage group will depart for Indianapolis on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.
