SFXMW Youth at NCYC in Indy this weekend

Several of the youth from our parish and their leaders along with thousands of other young Catholics are attending the National Catholic Youth Conference at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this weekend. Here are some pictures of our group.

The National Catholic Youth Conference is a powerful, biennial, three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers (of high school age) and their adult chaperones. More than 23,000 young people and their chaperones attended 2013 NCYC in Indianapolis.

The 2015 National Catholic Youth Conference is November 19-21, back in Indianapolis, with the theme Here I Am Lord/Aquí Estoy Señor.

The program includes keynote presentations, prayer, workshops, Mass, and opportunities to participate in reconciliation and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as recreational activities, concerts, and exhibits. A key component of NCYC is the thematic park which is a blend of traditional exhibit booths with interactive areas featuring service projects, games, recreation, live musical performances, arts, and sports.
