Diocesan Catholic Youth Conference (DCYC)

Each spring the youth of the diocese come together to celebrate our Catholic faith as it has been shared throughout the year in diocesan and parish ministry.

The Diocesan Catholic Youth Conference offers youth the opportunity to meet new friends, engage in exciting breakout sessions, listen to dynamic speakers, laugh, sing and worship with other like minded young people.
