Archdiocese of Denver youth invited to a life-changing experience at the NCYC

Avatar

Youth of the Archdiocese of Denver are invited to join 25,000 other Catholic teens from around the country for an amazing opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ and his church in new ways.

The National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) is the largest celebration of Catholic youth in the United States. The NCYC is organized by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM), which is made up of diocesan leaders and collaboration members from across the country. This celebration will be held at the Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indianapolis Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis, Ind. November 21-24.

Teens will have the chance to be empowered to become better disciples and be part of a wonderful experience in the young Church.

The 2019 NCYC theme is “Blessed-Broken-Given,” with a schedule that includes general and concurrent sessions addressing a wide variety of topics including forgiveness, Catholic spirituality and prayer, global issues, sexuality, and leadership.

There will be five general sessions which include nationally-known speakers that will motivate teenagers by sharing powerful and challenging messages of hope, Mass on Saturday evening, one general session each morning and one each night. In between general sessions, there will be rounds of workshops, an interactive thematic park for hands-on experiences, concerts, service projects, daily mass, adoration, reconciliation, and time to meet other participants from different parishes around the country.

Teens will be motivated by national speakers sharing powerful and challenging messages of hope, including Katie Prejean McGrady, author of Follow and Room 24.

NCYC is intended for high school teens and participants must be at least freshmen to attend. Each teen must register with a parish or school.

The Archdiocese of Denver is looking for teenagers that are interested and willing to take part of this life-changing event. The group will depart from Denver International Airport on November 21 and return on November 24.

If you are interested in joining our group, please contact the Office of Evangelization & Family Life Ministries at 303-715-3178 or visit archden.org/eflm/ncyc/.

Flocknote is a communciations tool designed for parishes, and you might not know this, but every parish in the Archdiocese of Denver has a Flocknote account. In fact, within the Archdiocese of Denver Flocknote network, over six million individual messages were sent last year!

Flocknote recently launched a Signups feature that makes it easier than ever to create sign up forms. It’s especially helpful right now as parishes require parishioners to sign up to attend Masses, but it can be used for much more than that. If you’re a Flocknote user, check out the video above for tips on how to use it.

If you’re not already signed up for your parish’s Flocknote account, be sure to ask how you can start getting crucial parish communications!
