Your group will have opportunities to:

Whether your students don’t have any sort of prayer life, or are looking to strengthen their already developed prayer life, our goal is that each student leaves BCYC Encounter ready to take their relationship with Christ to the next level.

We will help you, as Youth Ministers and chaperones, to build intentional relationships with your teens through small groups, creating a strong sense of community within your group so that teens have a support system when they return home.

We strive to give teens the tools necessary to not just make this another retreat, but to make it a turning point in their spiritual lives. Teens will learn how to pray from the Monks of St. Benedict’s Abbey, encounter the Lord in Eucharistic Adoration, and participate in the Sacraments.

The weekend is rounded out with tons of fun! In a continuing effort to build community within your group, teens will be led by our BCYC Missionaries in games and activities meant to help them form close bonds with one another. A dynamic that will continue when you return home.

BCYC Encounter is built for Diocesan, Parish, and School groups! You and your teens won't want to miss this life-changing weekend!

Encounter is a conference built on true relational ministry, where our college students walk alongside teens and help them to address the big questions.

We want to talk with you about your faith. We want to help you confront the real questions of life. At Encounter our college students, who are steeped in the Traditions of the Church, give testimonies, pray with the students, and lead games, all geared towards forming a genuine relationship with the Lord. This is unlike any other youth conference out there today. We’re meeting teens where they are, and helping them to grow one step closer to our God.
