Teen Testimonies

“The most moving and inspirational three days of my entire life.”

“What an indescribable blessing to go on this journey with such beautiful people. My faith has been strengthened by sharing these memories with you. I thank God for blessing me with the privilege to encounter all of you and I am proud to call you my NCYC family. For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand, it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13”

“Hello NCYC, I chose to come on this trip because of the struggle I have had faithfully recently. I truly had the best time of my life through those 3 days. I am a senior at Seton Catholic High School in Richmond Indiana and this weekend was so eye opening faithfully and socially. Thank you for the great experience and I hope to see the conference continue to do so well in the future!”

“The most moving experience I’ve had in my faith journey. “If you can curse, you can bless.” This quote hit me because it made me realize that I can have an impact on others’ lives no matter what they believe.”

“NCYC 2019! You truly changed my life I thank the Lord for answering my prays. I hope to everyone who still is searching for answers they will be found! God is good all the time and all the time God is good! NC! YC! #NCYC2019”

“NCYC has been an amazing trip. It has taught me so much, including how to be around others comfortably. I am so glad that I was able to go on these trips because they are so life changing. From walking around and trading things, Eucharistic adoration, everything has been revitalizing.” 

“It was an incredible experience and I can’t wait for 2021! The feeling when the entire stadium was singing Reckless Love was indescribable. I’ve grown closer to so many many people and most importantly I’ve strengthened my relationship with God. I can’t wait to see what he has for me because I know its going to be amazing!”

“NCYC was amazing, everywhere around you there are lives being changed. It brought me closer to Christ and helped me build my relationship with friends.” 

“NCYC was a lot of fun.  This trip meant a lot to me because I learned a lot more about my faith that I can grow and expand on. At Mass on Saturday I understood the power of community and I realized how many people come to celebrate the same thing but in different parts of the world.”

“This year’s NCYC has been mind opening. I never really realized that I needed this weekend until I got here. I’ve been really struggling with the loss of my grandpa and this weekend allowed me to see that its ok and that was meant to be. The workshops I went to gave me faith and hope for my future now and after high school.”

“I learned more in depth about the existence of God and the importance of God in everyone’s life. The experience was eye opening.”

NCYC was amazing, I feel like I have grown closer to God, and have strengthened my faith with him, I feel like I have found some more about myself as well.”
