Gabrielle Simpkins, a junior at Sacred Heart Academy, has been invited to participate in the 2015 National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) being held from Thursday, November 19 through Saturday, November 21, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Gabrielle will join more than 23,000 Catholic teenagers for a powerful three-day experience of prayer, community and empowerment for young Catholics.

Gabrielle was offered this experience as a youth leader in the St. Brigid Church’s Youth Ministry program. Her leadership skills will be further enhanced through her participation in NCYC and interactions with Catholic youth from across the United States.
