November 18-20, 2021

In a distinctly Catholic setting, the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) invites participants to encounter Christ, experience Church, and be empowered for discipleship.

Join us in Indianapolis for 2021 NCYC to be set Ablaze • Enciende El Fuego

2021 Theme: Ablaze • Enciende El Fuego

The second chapter of the book of Acts tells about the coming of the Holy Spirit. At NCYC 2021, we will call upon the Holy Spirit to descend upon our young Church and set them Ablaze for the Lord!

El segundo capítulo del libro de los Hechos de los Apóstoles nos habla de la venida del Espíritu Santo. En NCYC 2021 pediremos que el Espíritu Santo descienda sobre nuestra Iglesia joven y ¡encienda en ella el fuego del Señor!
