The Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, is a member diocese of the NFCYM. Groups from U.S. military installations may register under the discounted Member Diocese rates. In addition, groups from the military have two options. First, a military-connected group on a U.S. military installation may coordinate their own trip with a designated Chapel Adult Coordinator (approved by the AMS-endorsed Priest) to serve as the Delegation Leader. This POC must read the Delegation Leader Handbook and abide by all of the protocols and deadlines within. An alternative is to reach out to the local U.S. diocese where your installation is located to inquire if they are organizing a trip to NCYC and if there might be room for your group to join. Inquiries regarding these options may be directed to Mark Moitoza, Vice Chancellor for Evangelization, 202.719.3648.
