2015 NET Retreats 

Once again NET is coming to the Diocese of Manchester, and offering fourteen possible retreat dates. All retreat themes are appropriate for Grades 7 to 12. NET seeks to help youth understand and accept God’s unconditional love for them, and to grow in their commitment to Jesus Christ and His church. NET offers the team members’ faith as witness to youth that faith in God is desirable, acceptable and an exciting part of their lives.
