About NCSC


The National Catholic Singles Conference (NCSC) was created to give single Catholics the opportunity to meet other like-minded singles and learn more about and share their Faith. Talks by dynamic speakers, time for prayer, and various social opportunities provide a great balance of inspiration and fun!

Over the last 12 years, since February 2005, over 4,000 singles have participated in conferences in Denver, Chicago, San Diego, Philadelphia, Clearwater Beach, San Antonio, Atlanta, Dallas, and this past year in both Pittsburgh and Phoenix! Come join us for NCSC 2018 in Minneapolis/St. Paul!

Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

Here is a bit of background on the National Catholic Singles Conference.

What Inspired The Conference

I made the decision to organize the first conference in the summer of 2004, after hearing Mary Beth Bonacci speak on the Theology of the Body and singles. In the meantime, a friend of mine had been urging me to organize a conference especially for singles. With the help of another friend, I held the first National Catholic Singles Conference (NCSC) in February of 2005 in the Archdiocese of Denver. Being the first one of its kind, I had no idea how many people would come. But it was a hit! Before the weekend was over, I was being asked when the next conference would take place. And here we are, 6 states, 15 conferences, and over 4,000 attendees later! This year, we are excited to announce two conferences – NCSC East in Pittsburgh and NCSC West in Phoenix!  

The NCSC Experience

It has been a great joy to meet so many new friends at the NCSC throughout the years and to work with so many fantastic volunteers in various states. It’s always inspiring to hear about new connections made – including several marriages!

It is my hope that every year we all come away from the conference encouraged in our faith and our walk with Christ, inspired to give ourselves during this single time in service to others, better connected to our fellow brothers and sisters, and hopefully, more prepared for the vocation or mission to which God has called us!

Our Partner

I partner with the CatholicMatch Institute (the content arm of CatholicMatch.com) and run the conference as one of CatholicMatch Institute’s events. Not only does this provide me much-needed help, but it will help both of us toward our goal of reaching even more singles! While CatholicMatch is known notably for providing online meeting opportunities for single Catholics, they do much more and want to continue to do more for singles, couples and church leaders. I hope to share more with you in the future as we strive to provide more NCSC-type event opportunities.

How You Can Help

Together we can make the National Catholic Singles Conference an even better event that touches even more lives! I still need volunteers to help with local and regional promotion of the conference, wherever it happens to be, as well as to help with various logistical aspects.

If you want to bring the NCSC to your area and have a team of friends who want to volunteer with you, please let me know! As always, the NCSC and related events welcome all singles, whether or not they are members of CatholicMatch.com

Please join me this year in Phoenix! And in the meantime, I ask for your prayers as I continue to strive to make the best decisions for the NCSC and follow the Lord’s call in my own life.

Christ’s Peace,



Anastasia Northrop
Founder and Director of NCSC
