Thank you to everyone who supported NCYC 2023!

We had a blast with 350 youth and adults from the diocese in Indianapolis!

Read about it in the Catholic Missourian at the link below:

What is NCYC?

NCYC is a national three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teens and adult chaperones.

In 2023, nearly 350 youth and chaperones from our diocese attended NCYC and encountered the Lord. 

After returning from NCYC, our high schoolers shared that they had started praying more, were making time to reflect on God's work in their lives, and were hungry to take next steps in their relationship with Christ.
