NCYC is intended for Catholic teenagers in high school, accompanied by chaperones, to experience and encounter Christ.
Chaperones may include:
Chaperones must be at least 21 years of age and must submit an NFCYM/NCYC Legal Agreement.
While NFCYM does not require anything else, if you are coordinating a group for in-person participation, we recommend you collect your own permission/consent and a medical permission form, including emergency contact information, insurance information, and pertinent health and medical information for each person in your group. Your parish, school, or diocese should have templates for these forms. If traveling as a family, these forms would not be necessary.
NCYC is a great way for bishops to engage and interact with the young church. It is an opportunity to celebrate the Eucharist, confer the sacrament of Reconciliation, and to witness for young people the joy in your vocation to the priesthood.
Any adult over the age of 21 may purchase tickets. Purchasers will need to attest to their age when purchasing tickets through the online system. It is our expectation most tickets will be purchased by members, but the system is open to non-members as well. NFCYM reserves the right to cancel non-member bulk ticket sales, and refund the purchase price if it is suspected that they were purchased by a company to resell for a profit.
Things to be aware of as you prepare to purchase tickets:
- Full ticket amount is due at time of purchase (credit card or electronic check)
- Tickets must be purchased by adults 21 years of age or older
- Youth participants are to be within the ages of 14-18 (current high school freshman to seniors)
- All ticket sales are final – no refunds will be provided unless the event fails to open.
