Approximately 400 teens in grade 8 through 12 from parishes and high schools throughout Archdiocese of Philadelphia gathered Nov. 19 at Immaculata University for a one day, local version of the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC). Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez joined those in attendance.

Hosted by the archdiocesan Office for Ministry with Youth, the program featured dynamic speakers, live praise and worship, breakout conversation sessions for teens and adult ministers, confession, eucharistic adoration prior to the liturgy. (Photos courtesy of Archbishop Pérez)
