What is the GHACCYO?
The GHACCYO is the Galveston-Houston Archdiocesan Catholic Committee for Youth Organizations. This committee facilitates the NFCYM awards for youth in our archdiocese.
We are committed to fostering the Catholic spiritual development of members of Youth Organizations as designated by the Galveston-Houston Archdiocese authorized administrators.
All Activities have been Postponed
Due to COVID-19, all of our planned in-person activities have been postponed at this time, including the award ceremony and the Marian Series Patch Day. We will reschedule when we are able to.
Youth may still work on awards and all deadlines have been suspended. We will continue to accept award applications until we have a new date for the award ceremony.
Adult Advisor training is still happening. See dates below.
from Archbishop Daniel Cardinal DiNardo
Comfort us, O Lord, for we are like your disciples on the storm tossed seas, unsettled by what lies ahead. We turn to You, our Healer and Guide, to still our hearts in our time of need and hear our prayer: Heal those who are sick with the coronavirus and protect the elderly and most vulnerable. Give strength to all who tend to our health and wisdom to researchers who work toward a cure. Open our eyes and hearts, as you did during Hurricane Harvey, that we may look beyond our immediate needs to care for others who need help. Through the Holy Spirit, guide our leaders to make wise decisions for the welfare of all the people they serve. Grant eternal rest to those who have died from the virus. May Mary, Our Mother, who has heard our pleas in the storms of our lives, intercede to her Son, that we may find healing and a prompt end to this illness. Mary, Star of the Sea, pray for us. Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, heal us.Amen
