For Our Timber Wolves and Explorers
Within our FNE Explorer movement we strive to help our members grow ever closer to God by incorporating various elements or aspects of our faith into our everyday program.
Are we successful, you bet we are! Parents and youth members regularly report back a sense of a greater peace, heightened sensitivity to doing what is right and just, the realization that sin in our world (including our own) is very real, an issue that we all struggle with each and every day of our lives. We are drawn ever closer to the Lord through the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist while being increasingly willing to enter into prayer so that together and as individuals we can grow ever stronger in our love and trust in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As Explorers we are gaining a sense of joy by serving others (such as feeding the homeless or visiting seniors), to be sincerely forgiving those who have sinned against us or our loved ones, by being set free by asking for forgiveness for our own trespasses from the Lord and our fellow human beings, and by respecting and loving fellow human beings regardless of gender, creed or culture as we are all children of God.
