Growing in our faith… a visit to the Marian Shrine of Gratitude

“Many people from all walks in life innocently under estimate the hunger for God and all things good that come from God that our children’s souls and hearts ache for, a hunger that is often left unfilled or misunderstood.

Children are like sponges, they absorb much from many sources especially from multi-media and from peers that often lead them into worldly values and ideals that may impede their spiritual growth and development.

Children are generally innocent, trusting and loving when they are with adults or an organization that they know is approved as being OK to attend or participate in by their parents.

Within FNE we strive to continuously encourage the youth entrusted into our care to discover God through the unseen, their prayers and faith traditions all with a shared goal… as per one of the great commandments – Love one another as I have loved you. After all God is the source of all Love.

Many youth struggle to navigate through a world that promotes an ever increasing desire for material things, instant gratification and an inward turning to oneself often at the expense of others. FNE strives to help it’s youth express appreciation or gratitude for the many graces and well-being that they have while also thinking (and acting where possible) about those less fortunate then themselves such as the sick, lonely, homeless and those who have no one to love them.”
