The Archdiocesan Youth Conference (AYC) gathers over 2,500 participants - both youth and adults - from all over the local Church. AYC is the largest evangelizing event for older adolescents that the Office of Adolescent Catechesis and Evangelization hosts annually.
Through this event, incoming ninth graders through outgoing high school seniors are challenged to live out their faith, learn informative presentations, listen to outstanding national speakers, and make new friendships.
AYC provides youth with a unique opportunity to interact with the Cardinal and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese to celebrate the sacraments, to pray, and reflect on the role of the Young Church of Galveston-Houston.
Participants will experience the diversity of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston! They will have the opportunity to share and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ through daily Mass, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, confession, and other prayer experiences.
