North East Kansas Rural Youth Council

The NEKRYC members of 2022-23 are high school students representing 15 unique rural parishes. The mission of NEKRYC (developed by 12 charter members in 2014) is “to inspire youth, families and communities to encounter Christ through fun and faith-filled activities.”  NEKRYC helps in planning and carrying out RYMO events such as the Summer / Fall tour and the Rural Catholic Youth Conference and also assists with activities sponsored by the youth office and Prairie Star Ranch such as the Junior High Rally and Family Days. NEKRYC members gather in person and via video conferences to plan, grow in discipleship, and pray for one another and all the youth of ArchKCK.

2022-2023 NEKRYC members are:

Alexis, Renn, Evie, Carly, Sydney, Bella, Emily, Payton, Taryn, Brooklyn, Noah, Frederick, Thomas, Charlie, Leanne, Kaden, Austin, Edward, Rebekah, Isabelle, Moe, Katie, Baylie, Ryan, and Reese

THE APPLICATION for NEKRYC 2023-24 is HERE! and due May 5, 2023.
