NEKRYC (NorthEast Kansas Rural Youth Council) is a select group of young church leaders from all over the archdiocese who have made the commitment "to inspire youth, families, and communities to encounter Christ through fun and faith-filled activities."  


This year, we are proud to welcome 20 members from 14 unique rural parishes! NEKRYC members have an opportunity to attend a national leadership conference (offered every other summer); attend a private planning retreat at Prairie Star Ranch; and assist in planning and carrying out parish festivals and various ArchKCK events - including the RYMO Summer Tour and RCYC every other November.  Most importantly, they are surrounded by other Catholic teens that want to become life-long disciples of Christ.
