The National Evangelization Team (NET) Ministries Teams lead our freshman retreats. NET gathers 120 young adults each year, ages 18-28, to serve as modern-day disciples. They give a year of service through leading retreats for parishes, grade schools, and high schools across the United States. Many utilize the NET experience to work later as DREs, youth ministers, catechists, and volunteers. Nearly all NET alumni remain in active service with the Catholic Church after their year "on the road", and 15% pursue a religious vocation. Carroll families are needed to help house the NET team members for 1-2 nights. Please contact Jim Murray if you are interested in hosting a NET team member.
