The Diocese of Gary OYYA serves those who serve the young Catholic Church.
Through collaboration with parish leaders and youth-serving organizations, the Diocese of Gary OYYA seeks to nurture the total personal and spiritual enrichment of our youth and young adults, and to call them to full participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community as portrayed by Jesus in the Gospels.
OYYA programs are funded in part by generous donations to the diocesan Catholic Services Appeal
THANK YOU for your gifts!

Ten Challenges Facing High School-Aged Teens:
deliberation in the winter/spring of 2014, the DYC created this
document in hopes of accurately portraying the greatest challenges
teens face in our society. This list reflects the opinions and
ideas of the teens represented by the members of the Council who
represent churches throughout Northwest Indiana. DYC reps hope
parish leaders use this list as a tool to open dialogue with youth.

World Youth Day 2016: Due to overwhelming response, we have to officially
close our pilgrimage. We will have 80 pilgrims in 2016! Based on our current
prime hotel locations in Krakow and Rome, we are making this decision to ensure
the best experience possible for those who have submitted deposits. The diocese
will provide consultation should you wish to travel to WYD apart from the OYYA
pilgrimage, or you could request to be added to a waiting list, should others
withdraw. For those who are going click here
for updated WYD info.
