BCYC Encounter is a true experience of Benedictine Spirituality:

Community - Intentional small group time with questions and group leader tips to help your teens create a strong bond.

Simplicity - An experience of adoration that will help teens encounter Christ in the Eucharist in a real and tangible way and launch them into a deeper prayer life.

Stability - Teens will learn to pray from the Monks of St. Benedict's Abbey and be sent home with the tools they need to have a consistent prayer life (and Youth Ministers will get the tools they need to help them!)

On top of infusing Benedictine Spirituality into BCYC Encounter, we are also tailoring the conference to Generation Z. While students will hear from great Catholic speakers, they will also engage with the Monks, our Missionaries and each other to make Encounter and experience that is meaningful to them. We are working to make prayer and their faith accessible and relatable to teens today in a way that no other youth conference is doing.
