Attend NCYC with us in November!

Ignite: Confirmation Prep (grades 9-10)

Ignite is a two-year program for freshmen (Year 1) and sophomores (Year 2) that meets Wednesday evenings during the academic year, September—April. Teens will continue to build a relationship with Jesus as they grow deeper in their Catholic faith. Students will discover what it truly means to receive the blessed sacrament of confirmation, which takes place in February of their second year with us.

Called: Small Groups (grades 11-12)

Called is our two-year program for juniors and seniors, who will meet once a week in small groups guided by adult mentors. Our primary goal is to form intentional disciples who will keep the Catholic faith for the rest of their lives.
