MERRILLVILLE | Twelve young adults have made the Diocese of Gary one of their stops on a nine-month, 12-state tour of the country. Since September, the team has led Catholic retreats for young people in five states and the District of Columbia, including a recent swing through Pennsylvania.

National Evangelization Teams Ministries is headquartered in St. Paul, Minn. Each year, NET trains more than 100 young adults in faith formation, evangelization and retreat ministry skills to serve on NET ministry teams. The teams are then commissioned to travel to dioceses across the country, leading high-energy retreat experiences to bring the gospel to youth.

One of 11 teams will be in the area Dec. 6 through 13. Team members range in age from 18 to 24, and came to NET from all over the country.

Parishes/ministries hosting retreats during the NET team’s visit include:

• St. John Bosco, Hammond: Friday

• Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Hammond: Saturday

• Sacred Heart, La Porte: Sunday

• St. Thomas More, Munster: Tuesday

• St. Mary, Griffith: Wednesday

During their stay, the team will be housed at retreat centers, host homes, or parish facilities, and volunteers from the host parishes will provide meals for the team.

The Diocese of Gary has hosted a traveling retreat team for almost 15 years.
