Young, Travelling Catholic Evangelists Giving 120-150 Retreats A Year? Director of NET Ministries To Be Interviewed on Live CatholicTV Talk Show
On February 22nd, NET Ministries will be discussed on the live CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.
Mark Berchem, Executive Director of NET Ministries will be interviewed on This is the Day.
NET Ministries is best known for its travelling teams of young evangelizers who go from town to town giving retreats to young people. Travelling teams typically lead from 120-150 retreats each year. These young adults travel in a van, living with host families with only one suitcase and one backpack of personal effects. NET retreats are offered for youth from grades 7 to 12. Volunteer contacts within each diocese or parish work with the NET office to book teams for retreats and select retreat themes and formats.
Author Fr. Andrew Gawrych will also be interviewed on This is the Day. Fr Andrew is the co-author of the book “You Have Redeemed the World: Praying the Stations in the Holy Cross Tradition”.
This new book is a collection of Lenten meditations meant for parishes, schools, campus ministries, and other institutions seeking fresh forms of devotions and prayer. The fourteen traditional Stations of the Cross are presented through depictions of contemporary human lives as witnessed by members of Holy Cross religious communities in ministry around the world.
