NCDVD has been invited to coordinate the Adoration Chapel at the 2015 National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) to be held in Indianapolis from Thursday, November 19, through Saturday, November 21, 2015. Over 20,000 high school youth and adult chaperones will be in attendance, making NCYC one of the largest regular gatherings of Catholic youth in the United States. Here’s how you can be involved:
If you are planning on attending NCYC, please contact Fr. Eric Augenstein, Archdiocese of Indianapolis Vocation Director, at [email protected] or 317-236-1496.
All Diocesan Vocation Directors attending NCYC are asked to take a shift at the Adoration Chapel (Room 212 in the Indiana Convention Center) to be present to the youth coming to pray and available to talk with any who might want to have a conversation about vocation or discernment and also to assist at the NCDVD table outside of the Adoration Chapel.
Once you have contacted Fr. Eric, he will be in touch to find out a time when you can be present in the Adoration Chapel, which will be open on Friday, November 20, from 12:30 pm – 6:30 pm, and Saturday, November 21, from 11:30 am – 6:00 pm.
Also, limited housing options in local rectories are available for visiting Vocation Directors. Please contact Fr. Eric for more information.
Bishops are also being invited to do a Holy Hour in the Adoration Chapel; that information will then be communicated to their diocesan delegation.
