Marian Children Scholarships
God is the greatest Gift you will ever receive, and only He who can grant Himself to you which He did through giving you his Beloved Son, Jesus.† New Helfta Atelier and other supporters can only pray and hope to contribute their humble gifts and resources to help encourage and assist you to perceive that gift so that with humble gratitude, you can get on that right path that leads to Godís eternal reward and everlasting life.
Three Marian Children scholarships are available (we will do fundraising to promote more scholarships): :
1. $200.00 will be awarded to a junior (up to 8 grade Level)
2. $300.00 will be awarded to a teen (High School Level)
3. $500.00 will be awarded to a young
adult (College Level)† ††
Guidelines and requirements
God offers everyone the gift to do this.† Those who make an act of faith in humble gratitude to work and show their diligent effort and progress in the spiritual growth in search and love for God and his Church will be chosen and publicly recognized as role models for others.†
∑ Make it a habit to perform daily acts of charity.†
∑ Give thanks, praise and pray to God always; attend weekly Mass and pray the Rosary. Go to confession at least once a month.
∑ Write a four-month journal to God (handwritten) in the presence of the Blessed Mother.
-Journal entries should be made, preferably every day, or at
least every other day.
-Reflect on what you did well and what you could have done better.†
-Try to make an effort to correct your mistakes and to
reinforce what is good.
-Keep in mind that everyone is your brother and sister in Creation. God is the Heavenly Father and the Blessed Mother is the loving mother of all,
†††† since Jesus entrusted her to care for us and to love us before he departed his life on earth.
The Journal (one original Journal per person) will be read by members of the Scholarship committee. While God judges your true effort to do good,
††††††††††† the Journal contributes some basic information for awarding the scholarships!
