NET Canada at HFCRD

The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is thrilled to have the National Evangelization Team (NET) in our division for 2 school years commencing in October 2018. The NET Team travels to all HFCRD schools to lead retreats for students in grades 6 through 12, and hosts events for our communities at local parishes.

Encounter Days

The Overnight Encounter Day provides youth with a more intense Encounter Day experience by taking them out of their regular environment and helping them to think seriously about their relationship with God. They will hear powerful talks that will present them with the message of Jesus Christ and how to live as a Christian. These talks will include teachings on how to pray, why the sacraments are important, the necessity of Christian friends, getting involved in serving the community, and making a daily decision to follow Jesus. In addition, Overnight Encounter Days provide young people with more individual time with other participants and with the team.
