The theme for the event was “Blessed, Broken and Shared.” Keynote speakers unpacked each of these words each day of the event with the Scripture passage Luke 24:13-35 (Road to Emmaus). The event included several rounds of breakout sessions. In between sessions, a large exhibition hall hosted hundreds of booths for teens to learn more about religious vocations, Catholic colleges and universities, Catholic artists and speakers, and various national apostolates that help further the mission of the Catholic Church.
NCYC is held every two years in Indianapolis for high school teens.
