““All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle." - St. Francis of Assisi

Our Mission

To lead our youth into a deeper, closer relationship with Jesus Christ. To create a rooted connection to the Catholic faith that will better equip them for life after high school and give them a sense of belonging that will sustain them for life.

Deepen Your Faith

The World needs holy people. 

People who are willing to go against the grain of modern culture and seek out a relationship with Jesus, and lead a life filled with intention. It's hard to do that alone.

The opportunities and events below are invitations to you from the Lord to deepen your relationship with Jesus and grow in your faith.
When you decide to step out of your comfort zone, that's when real growth happens and that's where Jesus will meet you. 

What is NCYC?

In 2021, even with pandemic restrictions, more than 10,000 attended the conference with over 300 attending from our diocese.

Our Diocese will be attending NCYC  2023 in Indianapolis November 16-19, 2023.
