DIOCESE OF SCRANTON – NATIONAL CATHOLIC YOUTH CONFERENCE
It’s been just about a year since the Diocese of Scranton sent 130 high school students and chaperones to the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in Indianapolis, Indiana. That means that it’s almost time to start planning for NCYC 2019! Even though NCYC is a year away, it’s important that we get all of the information to you early so that you have plenty of time to prepare your group.
We will host an NCYC info meeting on Saturday, December 15th at 10:30am at the Diocesan Pastoral Center in Scranton. Brunch will be served while we have a working meeting to cover trip logistics and questions. I highly encourage anyone who is planning on bringing a group, or anyone who is interested in learning more about the trip, to come to join us on December 15th.
Please RSVP with me by December 11th so that we can plan accordingly.

PRAYER FOR THE UNBORN
Heavenly Father, You created us in Your own image. And You desire that not even the least among us should perish. In Your love for us, You entrusted Your only Son to the Holy Virgin Mary. Now in Your love, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those little ones to whom You have given the gift of life. Reach out to those considering abortion, and by Your grace, change their hearts and protect the unborn.
