A vast majority of Catholic youth are disconnecting from the Church during their teenage years. To reawaken their faith, NET Ministries trains teams of young adults to make a transformational difference in parishes and schools across the United States. Since 1981, our missionaries have proclaimed the Gospel to over 2.2 million young people, inspiring them to pursue a deeper relationship with Christ and increase their connection to the Catholic Church.

Retreat team missionaries will travel across the country from diocese to diocese and conduct close to 120 retreats, reaching almost 1,000 youth in small groups. Retreats include large group activities, talks, dramas, skits, small group discussions, prayer, and music.
