A request for families to host retreat team in Millstreet

A retreat for 1st and 2nd year pupils from Millstreet Community School will take place on Tuesday 18th March 2014 upstairs in the Parish Centre Millstreet, beginning at 9am.

The day will be led by the National Evangelisation Team (NET) Ministries which is a non-profit, Catholic Youth Ministry.  Over the last number of years they have run retreats in a number of schools in Kerry Diocese and this will be the sixth year they’ll have been in Millstreet.

The NET team consists of 10 members: 6 girls, 4 boys, ranging from the ages of 18 to 25. This team of young adults spend a year away from their own families in USA and Canada to share their faith with the young people of Ireland.

We are looking for families to put up the team members in pairs during their time in Millstreet for one night: Monday 17th March, from 7pm.  Families willing to do so are asked to provide a simple meal and a place to sleep, which does NOT necessarily have to be a bed.  The team members have their own sleeping bag and pillow and are flexible with where they sleep for the night, be it floors, couches, or air mattresses. They’ll need to be a parish centre on 18th March by about 8/8.10am the next morning to get ready for their busy day.

They are not expecting to be waited on, but are rather geared towards spending time with the family and adapting to your normal routine.

 If any families are able to host a pair of the team members for the night of 17th March, please contact John Magee (Chaplain, Millstreet Community School) on 029 70087.
