Local youth journey to National Catholic Youth Conference

SAGINAW- 94 high school students and adults from 11 parishes of the Diocese of Saginaw left today for the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in Indianapolis. They will join thousands of young people from across the country for an exciting, three-day experience that offers an opportunity for youth to encounter Christ, experience Church, and be empowered for discipleship. NCYC provides teens and their leaders time for prayer, service, reconciliation, Eucharist, and recreation. 

For teenage Catholics, a sense of community helps them draw closer to Christ. In a busy, noisy world, where high school students face pressure to excel in academics and extracurricular activities, fit in with peers, decide on college majors and more, large-scale gatherings like NCYC help young people to take a step back to reconnect with God and other young Catholics. 

All faithful are encouraged to pray for the Diocese of Saginaw group and for a fruitful, joy filled conference for all.
