N.E.T. Lifeline - ''Is God Calling Me?'' - 2/7/2015
Offered by N.E.T. Ministries and the Vocation Office

N.E.T. Ministries hosts Catholic teens Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, for a high-energy event. With us for this great evening is our very special guest, Archbishop Nienstedt. He will be joined by Fr. Troy Przybilla from the Archdiocesan Vocation Office. We especially welcome a great team of priests, religious Brothers and Sisters from various Religious Orders around the country.

The time is now as the modern world awaits the emergence of a handful of spiritual heroes and heroines who will serve the Church as Priests, Religious Sisters and Religious Brothers. Those specially called as witnesses of hope to a world in desperate need of the Good News. The question is not, Will God raise up great men and women for the Church’s mission? The question is, Who will God raise up?
And the answer is, Those you least expect. Is God calling you?

Mass is at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 and event ends at 9:30. NET Center, 110 Crusader Ave. W., West St. Paul; 651-450-6833. Check out
