The National Catholic Youth Conference was HUGE. Total attendance was over 22,000!
This was our first time going to an NCYC, and we’re really glad we came! We had a booth in the Thematic Park, and we were thrilled at the response we got from everyone who stopped by.
We gave out all 1,000 Precious Feet pins we brought, as well as hundreds of pro-life stickers provided by Stand True, and pieces of pro-life literature provided by Human Life Alliance. We also had some great conversations with several teens who are interested in starting their own pro-life clubs.
Everyone we talked to said they were having a great time at the conference. Two things in particular we heard a lot of great comments about were the Eucharistic Procession through the streets of downtown Kansas City and Jason and Crystalina Evert’s “Romance without Regret” talk.
I’d also recommend you read Bishop Jaime Soto’s excellent homily from the closing Mass on Saturday night.
We’re already looking forward to being at the next NCYC two years from now in Indianapolis.
