Hello! My name is Cecilia Nguyen and I'm from Surrey, BC. I love calligraphy, the mountains and baby kittens! I am so incredibly excited to serve with NET on Mission staff this year!

Last year I served on the front lines with NET on a travelling retreat team, Team 1. Together, we travelled across Canada from PEI to Whitehorse putting on 101 retreats for the youth that we encountered. Throughout that amazing journey, I've learnt many things about myself and my spiritual journey. God revealed to me this past year that not everyone knew who God is simply because there was no one to tell them about Him. I could see a longing for Christ in the hearts of these youth and seeing them come alive with love through our ministry was so amazing. It's because of these experiences that I've grown a love for this mission and realized that my journey with NET is not yet done.

I believe that we are all called to be missionaries and serve the Lord in different ways. This year, I will be continuing my journey with NET through the office as the Development Secretary. I am very excited about this opportunity to serve God and move the mission forward from behind the scenes. I would like to extend an invitation to you to join me on this mission through your prayers, financial support, or both! My goal this year is to raise $7,800 and I want to ask you to prayerfully consider partnering with me on this mission in this way. I am very gracious for your consideration to support the mission! You will all be in my prayers.

Thank you and God bless!


Hello, my name is James Pereira and I am from a small town just outside of Ottawa called Rockland. I’m incredibly excited to be serving next year as a youth coordinator for Annunciation of the Lord Parish! I grew up attending the junior high youth ministry and my time at Annunciation was essential to the formation of a faith life that would lead to my desire to be a missionary with NET Canada. I am so excited about the opportunity to give back to my old youth ministry. This year I served on Team 1, a travelling retreat team and I facilitated 101 NET Retreats for over 7000 young people, of whom 1620 made a personal decision to make a commitment to Jesus Christ. It was absolutely the best year of my life and I am beyond excited to begin this next chapter of serving in this mission of challenging young Catholics to love Christ and embrace the life of the Church. I know many Catholics are deeply saddened by a generation abandoning their faith and a relationship with Jesus and I want to help you bring those young people back to the Church, one soul at a time. If you would like to join me in this mission, I would ask you to prayerfully consider supporting me financially to reach my goal of $7800. If you choose to support monthly or more than $40 in a one time donation, you will receive periodic NET Newsletters and personal letter updates from me. Thank you so much for your time; I will be keeping you in my prayers! God Bless!

Hi there!

I've been living in Canada since August of 2018 when I started my time with NET Ministries. I am originally from Sydney, Australia. In 2018-19 I was in a Discipleship Team based in Brooklin, Ontario. In 2019-20 I was on Mission Staff and served as a Media Assistant, and this would be my third year but this time as a Team Supervisor. I have been blessed abundantly since being a part of this community, it's always been the same mission but I am always part of it in a different way.

When I first discerned to join staff I had a desire to grow in service, and not only was I able to fulfil that desire last year but there were many other ways that God was calling me grow. Mission Staff has pushed me to grow up, love harder, give more sacrificially, and to be creative in how I serve.

As I discerned whether a 2nd year on Mission Staff was the right path to take, there were two things I was certain of:1. I have an un-avoidable heart for The Mission2. NET Ministries is such a unique opportunity to take part in The Mission and I've already come this far.

So the question I had to answer for myself was will a door be opened for me again and will I find peace and purpose taking a step into it?

I am so excited to be a Team Supervisor this year! I am a strong believer in doing things in community and not alone. A missionary serving others is so important but being equipped is just as necessary and I am humbled to be a part of that. To give to the families and young people in a way that our missionaries need me to, and to be what the missionaries need me to be for them (mentor, administrator, support, friend). Whatever it is, I am excited to give my heart to those who need it.

For those that donate $50 or more, or are monthly supporters, you will receive the NET newsletter and personal letter updates from me throughout the year. Thank you for any support you are willing to offer, you are in my prayers! 


Hello everyone! My name is Maria Brown and I’m from Halifax, Nova Scotia. I’m so excited to be working with NET this year!

I am serving as Mission Staff this year because, throughout my first year as a missionary with NET, I felt God calling me to continue working with NET but in a new way. I trusted in the Lord and decided to apply for mission staff. Through prayer and discernment, I was accepted to work on staff as a recruiting assistant.

My past year serving on the road with NET was so full of blessings. I was very fortunate to have served on the Keewatin Le-Pas team this past year. It was such an incredible experience working in the North and serving the people of the Keewatin Le-Pas communities.

I would be so grateful if you were able to support me financially and through prayer this year for my mission. I have a personal fundraising goal of $7800 to raise for my year and I would appreciate it if you were able to support me in any way. If you donate $40 or more, or support me monthly, you will receive a NET newsletter and personal letter updates from me throughout the year. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I will keep you in my prayers.

God bless!


Hello, my name is Hunter Langill. I’m from the beautiful city of Ottawa, Ontario. I’m currently 19 years old. Before serving with NET I studied for one year at the University of Ottawa for Biology. This year I had the blessing of spending a year of my life in Northern Alberta, serving in the Holy Family Catholic Regional Division. This year has taught me about how much God loves each and every one of us and desires a personal relationship with us. Through discernment and talking with my parents (God love them), I have decided to serve on Mission Staff. I will be serving in Divine Infant Parish as a youth minister. I can not wait to take what I have learned over this past year and bring it to the youth in Ottawa. I would like to invite you to consider joining me both prayerfully and/or financially as a co-missionary this year. If you donate $40 dollars or more, or support me monthly, you will receive the NET Newsletter and personal letter updates from me throughout the year! I hope you will consider joining me on this amazing mission to encourage young Catholics to encounter Christ! God bless!

Hey! Thank you for taking time to consider supporting me in another year of mission. At the beginning of 2018, I felt God call me to quit my job and pursue full-time ministry. God has taken me on a unique journey of growing my interior life and a life of mission. Last year, I was led to be on mission in the Canadian North as a NET missionary in the Archdiocese of Keewatin-Le Pas. Through this experience, God was able to bring transformations of hope and healing within the youth, families, and communities across the archdiocese. This year I will be a Team Supervisor and I am excited to help train and mentor the NET missionaries throughout year!

This will be my fourth year on mission with NET Canada. My previous years were at St. Anthony’s Parish in Drayton Valley, Alberta, the Diocese of Mackenzie-Fort Smith in the Northwest Territories, and the Archdiocese of Keewatin-Le Pas in northern Manitoba and northern Saskatchewan. I am from Zurich, Ontario and have 8 siblings. I have a degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the University of Waterloo and enjoy volleyball, the Holy Spirit, engineering, farming and winemaking!   

Please join my mission with NET Canada through your financial support or being a prayer partner. By supporting my mission monthly or donating over $40, you will receive quarterly newsletters and personal letters updating you on how the youth of Canada are encountering Christ and being transformed! Please email me any prayer intentions at .

Come Holy Spirit!

Hello to you there! Thank you for taking the time to consider partnering with me this year and making a difference in the lives of youth all over Canada. By making a difference I mean showing the youth how fiercely God loves them and what it means to have a true relationship with him. 

I myself am so grateful for NET and how it has transformed me into a Man on a mission of love and service. Growing up, I struggled to find the importance of an intimate relationship with God and I was inspired to search for it by young adults living out their faith with such joy and authenticity. I never would have imagined that it would now be my turn to serve the Church in such a tangible way. 

Here’s a little bit about myself:
Height: 5’11 and 1/2 (6ft)
Weight: 10 lbs heavier after NET
Age: still below the legal limit for alcohol
Hobbies: soccer, snowboarding, and wakeboarding 

I grew up in Listowel Ontario with my parents and 5 lovely siblings on a pig farm. I love to play soccer and a good game of cribbage. Just recently I started to love reading as well! Growing up, I was the child that seemed to cause the most trouble and headaches for my parents. I guess it’s crazy to think that God has transformed me from the pain in the arse child into a man serving on such a powerful mission.

This past year I was a missionary with NET in Vancouver, British Columbia. Some of the best things that I took away from my year were my increased desire to grow closer to God through prayer, my love for intentionally investing in youth to evangelize, and a heart to strive for Sainthood. I want so deeply to know and love God through our Mother Mary! In the last few weeks of my year in Vancouver I discerned to do a second year on mission working on Staff with NET. 

This upcoming year I am one of the recruiting assistants on the staff team. My job entails finding youth who desire to share their faith and encouraging them to apply, and I often do this through great conversation and my personal testimony. It is such a gift to share what I received this past year!

All this being said, the intense growth that I received and the love that I was able to share would never have been possible without the generosity of my partnership donors. This upcoming year I am tasked with raising $7800 to provide for the cost of our mission. I would love to invite you to partner with me in spreading the love of God and the Church’s mission. If you choose to donate $40 or more, you will receive the NET newsletter and personal updates from myself throughout the year. If you are unable to support me in this way, or even if you can, I also ask that you keep me in your prayers in the coming year! (I really need them) We can trade because I’ll be praying for you! Thank you for your time and may God Bless you in your journey!

Hello! My name is Elianna Pyle and I'm from North Battleford, Saskatchewan. (Go, Roughriders!) I am so excited to continue this mission with NET as a Recruiter for this upcoming year, as I know that God has great, amazing plans in store.

This past year (2019/20) I have had the honour of serving on mission staff as a team supervisor- it was such an amazing experience and so beautiful to journey with the missionaries. I also served the year before (2018/19) as a NET missionary 'on the road' where I was located in Vancouver, BC. It was truly amazing to see God working in the youth and changing lives in BC- I can also confirm that it never stops being amazing, whether I'm seeing it from Vancouver to Saskatchewan to Ottawa; the Lord is so good! 

As a part of continuing with mission staff, I do have a fundraising goal of $7800. I would like to prayerfully ask if you would consider joining me in this mission by financially donating to NET! Also, if you donate $50 or more, or pledge monthly, you will receive the NET Newsletter, and personal letter updates from me throughout the year. It is through yourself that youth are able to experience Christ- we seriously could not do it without you! Through your support and prayers you are as much a missionary to NETs mission as myself, the other staff and the missionaries- amazing!! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my page. No matter what, I just humbly ask for your prayers, as prayer changes hearts and the world! 

Thank you again, you will be in my prayers!


Hello hello, folks! My name is Julianna Squires and I am from Surrey, British Columbia! However, I have spent the past 2 years living here in Ottawa Ontario which is beginning to feel like home! 

Serving at Annunciation of the Lord Parish in Beacon Hill has been the greatest privilege and blessing! Often I will sit in mass or come home from a youth night and find myself in tears due to the gratitude I experience! God has been so good to me and I am so grateful to serve again in this vibrant parish!

Thank you for joining my team! Please know that youth's lives are being TRANSFORMED because of your generosity! You are in my prayers! God bless,



Hello & thank you for visiting my page!

I am delighted that God is calling me to give another year to serve Him through NET! It is such an honour working for an organization that reaches thousands upon thousands of young people with the Gospel!

My first two years on the road were incredible. I got to witness so many hearts change every day as my teams and I lead young people into an encounter with Christ! It has been an amazing experience working behind the scenes here at our headquarters in Ottawa, working alongside beautiful Catholics who work towards making this mission a possibility! 

I personally invite you to continue making this mission a possibility with your financial and spiritual support! Please consider being a co-missionary with me, in this journey of evangelizing the youth of Canada. At NET Canada, we dream that every Catholic youth in Canada has an opportunity to hear about, respond to, and live for Jesus Christ. Your support is VITAL in making this a reality! Your generosity truly goes a long way, and I have seen it first-hand! If you have supported me in the past, I cannot express how grateful I am of your continual support. Thank you for being part of the mission with me. ❤

You are always in my prayers! 

God bless,
