High School Catholic Youth Convention
The Catholic Youth Convention (CYC) is a weekend experience of evangelization and transformation, where all parishes are welcomed to, and supported in, providing their high school youth with an encounter with God and deepening of our Catholic faith. CYC provides a place for over 1400+ youth to enter into a deeper, more vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and return to their parish communities with ardor for the Gospel.

This retreat is a multi-parish event open to High School youth and Young Adults in college level. There is no cost to participate.
