As the summer season draws to a close, student life at Providence Academy picks up speed.

The month of October brings colder days, colored leaves and lots of school festivities.

Adding to the autumn excitement, PA’s 2015 NET team arrived in late September, bringing an important faith component to the busy season of fall. In short, NET Ministries is an organization dedicated to spreading the Gospel to young people as well as encouraging them to live for Christ.

NET was established here, in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, in 1981. PA is a unique component of NET as it is one of only a few schools to host a permanent team for the year.

PA’s 2015-2016 NET team is comprised of eight individuals all the way from Nevada to the United Kingdom. The NET Team arrived on Sept. 21, and was welcomed into the school with a decorated NET Room and an introduction in the gym.

Mr. Richard Carrillo, the NET supervisor here at PA said, “I love their Friday morning praise and worship with adoration. That is honestly one of my favorite things the NET team does every year.”

During the autumn season alone, NET hosts over 20 activities for the school including adoration, retreats, Lifeline, rosary and small group. However, everyone is encouraged to participate in NET activities year round.

“NET activities are a fun break from academics events,” Netter Dominic Schaefer said. “We’re really looking forward to getting to know everyone and becoming a part of the community.”

This year’s NET team is: Michele Volk (Team Leader)from Havertown Pennsylvania, Alexia Bustios from Las Vegas Nevada, Katelynn McKeen from Little Lake Michigan, Jacquelyn Minton from Arlington Texas, Liam Riley (Team Leader) from Dewsbury in the United Kingdom, Noah Gilchrist from Reynoldsburg Ohio, Wyatt Overton from Ault Colorado, and Dominic Schaefer from Victoria Texas.
