The National Catholic Youth Conference is an exciting, biennial three-day experience of prayer, catechesis, community and discipleship. Teenagers and their adult chaperones learn about the Catholic faith through keynote presentations and workshop sessions that address a wide variety of topics. The Eucharist is celebrated daily and the sacrament of reconciliation is offered in addition to recreation and special activities such as concerts, exhibits, and the interactive thematic park.
Sponsored by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, NCYC is open to high school age young people and their adult chaperones. Many youth participants are leaders in their local parishes, schools and/or diocese, though many are just beginning to connect to their faith. Some participants may have experienced a previous NCYC, but many attendees are experiencing this type of gathering for the first time.
All participants from the Archdiocese of Atlanta must register through the Office of Formation & Discipleship. The diocesan group must have at least two chaperones for first one to ten youth and one additional adult for each additional one to six youth.
Parishes must identify and provide their own transportation. Parishes are encouraged to collaborate and communicate based on their preferred transportation services. Transportation is not provided by the Archdiocese.
