Fernanda Cano - Divine Infant Parish Youth Coordinator


Hello, there! My name is Fernanda Cano. I am 21 years old, originally from Mexico but moved to Bridgewater, N.S. about 9 years ago. My family and I now call it home!  I really enjoy living by the ocean, swimming in it (even in winter time!) I enjoy going for runs on the wood trails (watch out for ticks!) and diving into a book once in a while.

First of all I want to say what a blessing it is for you to consider partnering up with me! I served with NET Canada as part of a National Team, traveling across communities, setting up retreats for the youth, inviting them to a relationship with Jesus and being a personal witness for them as a young Catholic adult.  All of this would have not been possible without the constant support of co-missionaries, like you! It is the generosity and determination of each one of us that makes a difference in the mission to evangelize the youth of Canada, in order to bring them closer to a personal relationship Jesus Christ!

Secondly, I am a witness and fruit of NET’s mission, the outcome of a NET family retreat that stirred my soul with the love of God, and has been put into action! Serving with NET Canada last year, I can say that experience has deepened my heart for mission and increased my desire to reach out to the youth.

Lastly but most importantly I ask for your prayers, it is through prayer that we find strength and growth! If you could keep me and all others missionaries in your prayers as we continue to spread the Good News, that would be a huge support! Please consider joining NET in the mission of challenging young Catholics to love Christ and embrace the life of the Church.

Thank you and God bless, Fernanda Cano
