2019 NCYC

Registration in now open


The National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) is a biennial three-day experience to encounter Christ, experience Church, and be empowered for discipleship sponsored by the National Federation for Catholic Ministry (NFCYM). Over 20,000 high school teens, parents, and youth ministers from around the country will gather November 21-23, 2019, around the theme Blessed, Broken, Given. NCYC takes place at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

In collaboration with NFCYM, NRVC invites you to be part of this celebration of Catholic faith to be promote vocations to religious life. In order to broaden the invitation, NRVC is sponsoring a gathering space to meet participants and promote vocations to religious life called Inspiration Nook, near the thematic village. All NRVC member participants will receive a ribbon for their nametag giving them access to Inspiration Nook as their schedule allows throughout NCYC.

There are three ways to participate in NCYC:

1. Attend with high schools, parishes, and dioceses and register as an adult participant with these groups. As an NRVC member, you are welcome to volunteer at Inspiration Nook as your schedule allows. Typically, NCYC registration is $245 per person, however the group you attend with may have additional fees for meals, travel and accommodations. 

2. Register for an information exhibit booth in the thematic village to promote your religious congregation and volunteer at Inspiration Nook as your schedule allows. Registration is typically $750 for a 10 x 10 space and includes 4 exhibit credentials. Travel, meals, parking, and accommodations are not included, you must make these reservations on your own. Learn more and register here.

3. Participate as a volunteer throughout the thematic village and in Inspiration Nook as your schedule allows. You may register as an individual or register with members of your religious institute; there is no minimum or maximum volunteers you can register. Before registering, please ask for t-shirt sizes as there will not be extra t-shirts available to exchange (for the stewardship of resources).  Travel, meals, parking, and accommodations are not included, you must make these reservations on your own.
