Hello! Bonjour!

My name is Katie Jacobs and I am excited to be a part of the NET team this year! Thank you so much for taking the time to consider sponsoring me today! :) I am 23 years old and I am from Windsor, Ontario, but I have lived in Ottawa for the past five years to attend University. I am now a recent graduate from Carleton University with a MA in journalism and a BA in English. Although I appreciate my education, I know how difficult it is for young people and students to understand how they can have a faith life in an increasingly secular world. I am hoping to connect with youth to help them learn how they may also invite Jesus into their lives as they continue with their studies and prepare to enter the workforce. I am an altar server at St. Augustine’s parish, and I am also involved in the Alpha team there. My hobbies include reading, researching writing, listening to instrumental music and cooking. I hope to become a radio journalist someday or an English professor.

I am so grateful to be a part of the NET team in Whitehorse, even if it is colder than Windsor! My team will be working closely with the church communities here to help youth be more excited about their faith! We do this by visiting students in schools, putting on youth groups and other youth events, and volunteering in the community. We have already experienced so much hospitality on our arrival and we can’t wait to give back in every way we can.

Again, thank you for visiting my page and getting to know me! If you decide to donate $50 or more, or donate monthly, you will receive a NET newsletter and a personal letter to update you on the mission throughout the year. I am looking forward to this journey with you, and I will keep you in my prayers. <3

God Bless You,
Katie
