Who we are!

What is NET?

NET (National Evangelization Teams) is a catholic peer to peer Youth ministry that puts into the church’s mission to evangelize and disciple young people.

OUR VISION is to see Empowered young people who are influential in the renewal of the Church and society.

Our Story

NET had its origin at the Catholic Youth Centre, in St Paul Minnesota, USA in 1981. In May of 1987 Shayne Bennett was sent the Emmanuel Community to ascertain the viability of bringing NET to Australia. Shayne will say that what he saw surprised him, not that the Netters were particularly talented or extraordinary young people, on the contrary they were ordinary young people who their faith and commitment as well as the grace of God were doing an extraordinary job. Hence, this Catholic peer to peer ministry of evangelisation was introduced to Australia in 1988.

In 2004, NET was introduced in Uganda Mr Fred Mawanda, from Holy Trinity Community, Masaka. It was endorsed the Bishop of Masaka , then, Bishop J.B Kaggwa the late.
