Fellowship of Catholic Christian Women® (FCCW)
Topic for study year is "Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism"


All women in our parish are invited to join the Fellowship of Catholic Christian Women® this year.

FCCW’s morning group will meet on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. starting Sept. 8.

Note that the evening group will gather Tuesday, Sept. 14, at 6:30 p.m. for its first study session. However, the group will then transition to Monday evenings on the second and fourth week from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

FCCW invites you to deepen your faith with other like-minded women through our Bible study topic – “Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism.”

This study explores how Jesus fulfilled God’s plan to establish the Catholic faith that we practice today. The author, Sonja Corbitt, will lead us to understand how the elements found in the Hebrew tabernacle were used – and are still used today – as the foundation of Catholicism. We will learn about parallels between the Mass and the Hebrew scriptures. We will find connections between the older and newer testaments, and how Jesus fulfilled ancient tradition.

This study will help you to deepen your understanding of the roots of our Catholic faith, and open your eyes and heart afresh to understand that God gave us the “new” built upon the “old.” He gave Catholicism a life that the old order could not hold – he fulfilled it.

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
