Bishops

Join Us

Since 1983 NCYC has continually served as an impactful anchor point in the faith journey of the young Church and continues to be a reminder that there is a thriving national community of young Catholics.

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.

NCYC has a capacity of 10,000 this year and we are excited to share young people’s stories, ask questions, receive blessings, and enjoy your presence as they witness Jesus Christ.

For more information, please email Darius Villalobos at [email protected].
