Inspired by the writings of Brother Lawrence in his book The Practice of The Presence of God, YCP Members from across the country are gathering together for a weekend devoted to discovering the greatest secret of living in the Kingdom of God: practicing His presence in one single act that does not end.


Friday, September 13, 2019 through Sunday, September 15, 2019


Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center in Dallas, Texas

Why Have A Member Conference?

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.

[We] were humbled and inspired by... the speakers and the members that we met from all over the country. It was truly a tremendous experience that brought to life for us the mission of YCP of Catholic identity, community and call to action. It is a privilege for us to be part of YCP.

Mike Stefanski, YCP Board Member

What an incredible weekend. Feeling so on fire for Jesus and Mary!

Christine Lally, YCP Jacksonville

I received so much from the Young Catholic Professionals Conference - professionally, socially, and spiritually. Most of all, I was able to entrust my worries to the intercession of our lovely Blessed Mother. Mary, pray for us!

Brittany Ford, YCP Omaha

It was worth it, and then some. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to be at the conference.

What an AMAZING weekend. I smile to think how happy Our Blessed Mother must have been those days! I am so blessed to have been a part of it.

Fr. Ryan Richardson, YCP Dallas

The weekend was filled with so many graces, opportunities, and new friendships, and I strongly felt Our Lady working in so many ways, both in my heart and in my life...feeling completely showered with love and graces from Mary, our Queen, our Mother, and our Hope.
