Fellowship of Catholic Christian Women® (FCCW)Topic for study year is How to Receive All that the Holy Spirit Wants to Give You
Women of all ages are invited to stop at the table on the patio after Masses Aug. 12-13 (English), Aug. 19-20, and Aug. 26-27 to receive information and sign up to participate in the Fellowship of Catholic Christian Women® (FCCW).
"Come and See" session is scheduled Monday, Aug. 21, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.
You are invited to participate in the Fellowship of Catholic Christian Women® (FCCW) new study year where you will learn how to receive everything the Holy Spirit wants to give you.Through FCCW participation, you’ll meet women of like mind, develop a new or deeper awareness of your own spirituality, develop a greater receptivity to invite others to a life of lived faith in a Catholic community, and in the process, you’ll learn ways to open yourself to grow closer to the Lord.
Whether you participate in the Morning or Evening FCCW Fellowship, through studying the Word of God, small group discussion and faith-sharing, you will grow in understanding and enter the doorway into a closer spiritual relationship with the Lord. Women of all ages will benefit from the wisdom, knowledge, and experience of community offered by either of these focused study programs. If you have been yearning to grow in, and share your faith, this invitation is for you!
At OLA we are blessed with two separate FCCW fellowships that meet using two different schedules. Both the Morning Fellowship and the Evening Fellowship will study the same topic. Regular study sessions will be:
- Second and fourth Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m.
- Second and fourth Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The purpose of the Fellowship of Catholic Christian Women is to bring Catholic Christian women together in the Spirit to deepen each one's personal relationship with God. It is our goal to foster fellowship among Catholic Christian women for the purpose of evangelizing women; building a faith community; promoting the development of the spiritual life of every woman; and reaching out as a group in ministry.Together, through study, discussion and faith-sharing, the women of FCCW will gain an understanding of each year's topic. You are invited to join us!
OLA's FCCW began in 2006; it is a part of the Fellowship of Catholic Christian Women® (FCCW) ministry that is offered in four western states: the state of Washington, northern and southern California, Arizona, and Texas. FCCW was founded in 1996 in Riverside, California by Patricia Scileppi at St. Catherine of Alexandria Parish. In 2006 the first Spanish-speaking group, FCCM (Fraternidad Catolica Cristiana de Mujeres®) began in Rialto at St. Catherine of Siena Parish. FCCW continues to grow with new fellowships forming under the leadership of Ministry President, Barbara Cheddar. Each parish-based fellowship is led by facilitators that are parishioners of the local parish.
The regional FCCW leadership, in cooperation with parish-based fellowships, sponsors Women's Day events, as well as formation and leadership workshops and women's retreats. For additional information, visit the regional FCCW website at www.fellowshipofcatholicchristianwomen.org
