A National Evangelization Team (NET) is facilitating two retreats— a Middle School Youth Group retreat and a Confirmation Retreat at Saint Patrick Catholic Church the weekend of December 2-3, 2017. Host families are needed for the NET Retreat leaders! What better way to kick off the Advent season then sharing your home with a few young people who are ministering to our youth!
Consider host a NET member or two or even a few— you will be blessed by the experience!
What is a NET?
NET Ministries challenges young Catholics to love Christ and embrace the life of the Church. Every August, 150 young Catholics aged 18-28 leave behind their jobs, school, family, and friends to devote nine months to serving with the National Evangelization Teams (NET).
Divided into 14 teams, they travel across the U.S. for nine months to share the Gospel with young people and their families. Since 1981, NET teams have led over 29,000 retreats and ministered to more than 1.7 million young Catholics. Learn more at www.netusa.org.
Anna and Joe Skillman— former Pastoral Assistants for Youth Ministry, who currently serve as Confirmation Leaders at Saint Patrick Catholic Church both volunteered for NET Ministries after college and had a great time, noting that, “getting to know the host families was one of their favorite parts of the experience.” Now they reach out to NET Ministries for retreats.
Answer the Call to Serve!
