Study Abroad: NET Ministries Ireland

John Paul the Great Catholic University has a partnership with NET Ministries Ireland, providing a unique “ministry abroad” experience for students interested in evangelization.

Students can travel to Ireland and participate in evangelistic outreach through NET. Founded in 1981 in Minnesota, NET Ministries (“National Evangelization Teams”) sends out teams of Catholic young adults around the United States to put on retreats for high school and middle school students. NET has since expanded with sister organizations around the globe, including a program in Ireland.

Participating students will prepare with an intensive online summer course from NET, training them for the program. They will travel to Ireland from late August until Thanksgiving. Depending on which team they are assigned to, they’ll participate in evangelistic outreach like parish retreats, street evangelization, and a coffee shop ministry. Their work with NET will count for credit at JPCatholic and serve as a practicum. Interested students should contact Prof. Steve Kramp.
