National Catholic Youth Conference 2017

‘My parents would agree it was a big, life-changing experience for me’

Noah StreitNoah Streit thought it was more than cool when someone at the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) noticed his youth group from the Archdiocese of Anchorage, Alaska, and dubbed the group “The Frozen Chosen.”

That moment of fun and faith reminded Noah of the heart-warming and soul-stirring experience that he had two years ago at NCYC—an experience that made him want to return to Indianapolis for the conference on Nov. 16-18.

“It was a life-changing experience for me,” said Noah, who is 18. “I wasn’t as huge into the Church when I came here two years ago. But after that, I started to go to church a lot more, I was part of the youth group a lot more, and I helped with service projects and Sunday school.

“It was awesome. My parents would agree it was a big, life-changing experience for me. I wanted to come back to re-energize my faith.

“I love the Catholic faith. I love church. I love God. And I like to do things like this. I definitely feel I’m a lot more into the Church and my faith.” †
