2015 NCYC (The National Catholic Youth Conference)

Theme: 'Here I Am, Lord!'

Dates: November 19-22, 2015

The National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) is an exciting, biennial three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teens. NCYC began in 1983 and gathers 20,000+ youth and adults from across the country for three days of prayer, learning and to celebrate being Catholic! In 2013, 25 teens & adults from the Heart of Mary Cluster attended! We hope to take a group from our cluster again in 2015! 

*Our cluster head count and initial deposit have to be submitted to the Archdiocese by Thanksgiving.
