DCYC 2015 is our 20th anniversary holding this conference for the diocese of Fort Worth. Our theme for this year is "Catholic: know, love, serve". We are getting back to the roots of our Catholic faith to evangelize and inspire the youth to come to know Him in a dynamic way, and by knowing Him better we can obviously grow in loving Him more deeply and finally have the conviction to live out our Catholic faith proudly by serving our Lord. We hope and pray that you will consider joining us for this amazing conference this year with our keynote speakers of Chris Padgett and Sr. Mary Madeline!
