Cultivating Faith in Small Christian Communities
Devotional practices are the keepers of faith and deepen the hearts of the faithful. Promoting devotional practices, particularly praying the rosary in homes, schools, and small Christian communities, is a key goal of the Stepping Stones Foundation of Hope. We believe that the mind, heart, and spirit require tending for an individual to be whole and well. While efforts are being made to facilitate secular education, efforts are also being made to promote faith education.
Several projects are ongoing in the light of this objective:
Reciting the rosary promotes a chain of faith and love uniting us with the Blessed Mother in divine fidelity and love of her Son. We encourage this amongst the children of SSFOH.
Grotto of our Lady of Perpetual Help
A grotto such as this is an invitation to prayer, devotion and spiritual renewal.
Divine Mercy Way of the Cross
A nearly one kilometer beauty laden, meditative, peaceful boulevard of the Stations of the Cross is in the process of being completed.
Support our Dream:
A NEW CHURCH AT BUNNAMWERI
The plan for this church has been drawn. Some construction materials have been collected. We need your help and financial support to begin the construction. The estimated cost for building the church is $100,000.
Oh Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke your powerful name, the protection of the living and the salvation of the dying. Purest Mary, let your name henceforth be ever on my lips. Delay not, Blessed Lady, to rescue me whenever I call on you. In my temptations, in my needs, I will never cease to call on you, ever repeating your sacred name, Mary, Mary. What a consolation, what sweetness, what confidence fills my soul when I utter your sacred name or even only think of you! I thank the Lord for having given you so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely uttering your name. Let my love for you prompt me ever to hail you Mother of Perpetual Help. Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for me and grant me the favor I confidently ask of you.
(Then say three Hail Marys).
