THANK YOU TO SACRED HEART PARISH AND THE DIOCESE FOR BRINGING A NET MINISTRIES TEAM TO WHITEHORSE.
The current NET team will be here until the end of May and a new team will come next October 2021 to continue the work that has been started. The team is involved in music ministry at Sacred Heart Parish and Our Lady of Victory, leading the high school and middle school youth groups at our parish, and doing outreach to youth in our high school, elementary schools and in the missions.
They are part of a larger network of young missionaries who are taking a year off to bring Canadian youth towards a deeper love of Christ. They are here to support our Catholic schools and to be another avenue (peer-led) for inviting youth, whether Catholic, Christian or secular, into an authentic dialogue about faith and spirituality.
If you would like to know more about NET, you can visit their website at netcanada.ca, on Instagram at Whitehorse youth, or contact Andrea Lefebvre at 867-668-2768.
We ask for your prayers that the NET Team's will touch the hearts of our youth.
FUNDRAISING The NET Project is an investment into Catholic youth ministry in the Yukon. The Diocese and Sacred Heart are sharing this expense. The cost for the current team is approximately $42,000. Sacred Heart is responsible for $21,000. Our Steering Committee has made a goal to raise $25,000 for this year to help offset these youth ministry costs for Sacred Heart. We have already received some donations from one of the missions and from private individuals.
If you are able to support this ministry financially, that would be much appreciated. Donations can be made by cheque payable to Sacred Heart Parish, or online at http://www.sacredheartcathedral.ca/donate.html (Canada Helps). Please indicate that it is for the NET Project.
