youth conventiin

In a distinctly Catholic setting,
the National Catholic Youth Conference
invites participants 

to encounter Christ, experience church,
and be empowered for discipleship.

Every other year, Catholic young people and their chaperones—youth ministers, campus ministers, parents, catechists, priests, coaches, and scout leaders—come together to pray, learn, and grow in their faith. In addition to opportunities to receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and penance, NCYC participants attend general and breakout sessions on topics relevant to living as a disciple of Christ in today's world, visit with organizations that provide resources and other support to youth and youth ministry, spend time in personal and communal prayer, and engage in service to others. November 16 -18, 2017, downtown Indianapolis

Lights at the Brickyard
We don’t usually get to see the famed oval at night, but this drive-through display shines some light – 2.5 million lights to be exact – on a two-mile course through the infield and crossing the start-finish line at the Yard of Bricks through December 30. Admission is $25 and up per car, and Speedy Passes are available to help you avoid waiting in line. Only 2.5 miles from the Waterfront Hotel. Why not include that in your weekend get away?

Festival of Trees
The Indiana Historical Society becomes a winter wonderland with 80 elaborately decorated trees, plus a 30-foot beauty you have to see to believe. Vote for your favorite, find the 10 pickle ornaments (Weihnachtzgurke), search for the Elf on the Shelf, and enjoy sing-alongs when you visit through January 6. Festival of Trees is included with admission of $5-$9.

A Christmas Carol at Indiana Repertory Theatre
The IRT’s presentation of this classic tale is a holiday tradition for many Hoosiers. It’s faithful to Charles Dickens’ story of one man’s redemption after learning lessons about love from ghosts past and future. Opening night is Saturday, and the play runs through December 24. You can even meet reindeer and Santa’s elf before select performances! Tickets are $25 and up.
