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.

Mission Statement

We are committed to fostering the Catholic spiritual development of members of Youth Organizations as designated by the Galveston-Houston Archdiocese authorized administrators.

Adult Award Nominations

Did you know that we have awards for adults? We know that none of our youth would be earning medals if it weren't for the dedicated adults who work with them. Learn more about the adult awards and nominate someone today!


Archbishop's Trophy

The Archbishop’s Trophy is presented annually at the GHACCYO Award Ceremony to the parish within the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston whose youth have made outstanding contributions of service to the church, community, and home, and have made continued progress in their own spiritual development. The parish makes a vital contribution toward the achievement of this trophy by offering opportunities for the members to enrich their spiritual life and by informing and helping youth acquire one or more of the religious awards sponsored by the Galveston-Houston Archdiocesan Catholic Committee for Youth Organizations.
