"The day of the Nativity of the Mother of God is a day of universal joy, because through the Mother of God, the entire human race was renewed...” - Saint John Damascene

The YCP annual Member Conference gathers together young professionals from diverse industries and geographies for an inspirational weekend conference led by some of the nation's most exciting Catholic role models. In addition to numerous social events, attendees grow stronger in their conviction to Work in Witness for Christ through challenging speeches, inspiring meditations, and renewing faith formation, equipping them to leave the weekend with the confidence and courage needed to become the next generation of Catholic leaders.

YCP’s 2018 Member Conference: Mary, Star of Hope will lead you through a refreshing mix of talks, prayer, fun, and fellowship. Together we’ll learn how to imitate Mary’s ‘Fiat’ - her yes to God’s will. We’ll experience the richness of Mary’s role by exploring important Marian devotions, prayers, and apparitions. We’ll pray the rosary together and make a unified commitment to have recourse to Mary during the workday.

You will be able to customize your conference experience by choosing breakout sessions that are most appealing to you. And in true YCP fashion, we’ll have an unforgettable formal gala on Saturday evening in honor of Our Blessed Mother’s birthday. This weekend will be more than “just a weekend” as it will revitalize your faith and expand your friend base. Join young Catholics from across the U.S. on an adventure of hope and promise!
