NET Life

NET team members invite youth to have an encounter with Christ. They will also receive 5-7 weeks of formation on faith, prayer, communication skills, Catholic teachings, and specialized ministry training before they are sent out to do ministry. They go through what we call Orientation.
NET team members must come to Masaka-Uganda at the beginning of November for orientation. NET teams are commissioned at Commissioning Mass at the beginning of December, then sent out to start their ministry work. NET team members ought to have a two-week break period in December for the Christmas break. The mission year ends with the Thanksgiving Mass (in September). For specific dates, please contact the Recruiting Coordinator.
No. All applicants who get accepted to become a NET missionary must be open to whatever ministry team that they will be assigned to on their NET mission year. The staff takes into consideration what type of team a team member would prefer, but through prayer and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of each missionary they are able to build balanced and dynamic teams.
If a NET team member has an event to attend (e.g. weddings, funerals, etc.), they will be given permission to return home upon the approval of their Team Supervisor and the Executive Director. Some conditions do apply and NET team members should not expect that they will be given permission in all circumstances.
