What We Do

Discipleship Teams

A Discipleship Team consists of 5-7 missionaries who work in a parish for the duration of the mission year. Building sincere friendships with Irish young people, missionaries walk with youth who are looking for the next step in their faith.

What is a Discipleship Team?

Missionaries work with the local priests and teachers to develop the best programmes to fit individual groups of young people and their spiritual needs.


Discipleship is the core of what we do. Peer mentorship is essential to building and fostering faithful Christians.

Sacramental Preparation

Assisting in catechesis, discipleship teams facilitate year-long Confirmation classes and retreats.

Youth Groups

Teams lead weekly youth groups full of fun games, engaging talks, and learning activities.


We provide students time to step away from the busyness of everyday life to connect or reconnect with Jesus.

Music Ministry

Music is a massive part of our ministry, whether that’s for Mass or Holy Hours.

After School Programmes

After-school clubs give students more opportunity to encounter the Gospel in a pressure-free environment.

Key Benefits

Why invite a Discipleship Team to your parish?

  • Bring life to your parish by establishing a dynamic youth ministry programme.

  • Welcome young, vibrant missionaries who are trained to engage young people and meet them where they are.

  • Provide young people with the knowledge that they, too, have a place within the Church. 

Invest in Youth

Unlock the potential of your young people.

Most young people have the ability, but lack direction and courage to do worthwhile things in their lives. Our missionaries are trained to lead youth by helping them live a Christian life of virtue.

Your Investment

What does it cost?

We want every parish to host a discipleship team and therefore go to great lengths in fundraising to offset the cost for parishes. Please contact us to further discuss the cost.

NET missionaries are shining lights.

Wherever they go, they try to bring the love and hope of Christ. They are sorely needed to inspire not only their peers but so many others who have forgotten God in the maze of life. Let us pray for them, that God will make their work fruitful and that they will contribute greatly to the re-evangelisation of Ireland.
