National Catholic Youth Conference 2017

‘I can’t get to where God wants me to be without him’

Mynais CollinsFor 15-year-old Mynais Collins, his first experience at the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) in Indianapolis started with a desire to meet other Catholic teenagers from across the country—and to make trades for some of the crazy hats that have become a staple part of the three-day celebration that connects 20,000 youths from across the country.

Still, there was an even deeper connection that Mynais hoped to make during the conference in Indianapolis on Nov. 16-18.

“I want to get closer to the Lord because I haven’t been having a great relationship with him,” said the member of St. Rita Parish in Indianapolis.

“I want to have a stronger bond with him because I believe that throughout my life, God will lead me to success.”

The conference was a start for him in that direction.

“I can’t get to where God wants me to be without him.”
