The Feasibility Study
Archbishop José Gómez of Los Angeles has asked NFCYM to consider hosting NCYC on the West Coast. In response to this request, and recognizing that many factors render this conference cost prohibitive for people from this part of the country, NFCYM is assessing the feasibility of hosting an additional conference on the western side of the Rocky Mountains. We kindly ask that you take a few minutes to complete the survey below. We need a statistically valid sample in order to responsibly evaluate this request.
The National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) is currently held biennially and is contracted for Indianapolis through 2023. The conference gathers more than 22,000 Catholic teens, parish youth ministry coordinators, bishops, pastors, parents, school campus ministers, adult chaperones, coaches, scout leaders, and diocesan leaders. The conference is sponsored by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) and offers a three-day experience for young people to encounter Christ, experience church, and be empowered for discipleship. NCYC offers opportunities for prayer, catechesis, service, reconciliation, Eucharist, and recreation. NCYC began in 1983 as a regional conference, with sessions held on the East and West Coasts. NCYC was merged into a national conference in 1991. To learn more about NCYC, view the videos on this page, peruse the 2017 conference program book, and find us on Facebook.
