fiat-womens-group-banner-2016Mary responded to God’s call with faith and love.  Do you sometimes find it hard to do the same in your life? ALL women of ALL ages and walks of life are invited to FIAT where together we can learn how to joyfully, generously and courageously say “yes” to God’s call to each of us in our vocation as Catholic women.

Fiat will meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Each meeting will include prayer and a talk from a distinguished seminary faculty member.
